Passengers will be able to hook up to the ‘net by using any Wi-Fi enabled device such as a notebook, PDA or smartphone. The $29 access fee will get you 1GB of bandwidth per month but if you opt for the $59 plan you’ll get 5GB.
Cadillac's Wi-Fi will be portable
Both 2.5G and 3G networks are supported by Cadillac Wi-Fi but you’ll take a significant speed hit when using the former. Still, the system could come in handy for travelling salespeople or sales teams that need constant contact with the office.
Although Autonet touts the ability to use the system for more consumer applications such as keeping the kids entertained on a long trip, the relatively low bandwidth option of 5GB means you’ll have to be careful when using streaming media. Still, the $59 price point is comparable to similar plans offered by AT&T and Verizon.
