In-Car Wi-Fi hits the road – video

Back in September of last year we launched the UK's first MiFi product. We were really proud when it finally hit the shops, and we've been really pleased with how it's been received. We've had a lot of feedback from consumers about how we should evolve the MiFi product. One of the suggestions that came through loud and clear was to make it even more portable and to build a package that allowed you to use it in your car - in fact 25% of people say they're interested in having the internet in their cars. So, this week, our very own In-Car Wi-Fi package hit 3 Stores. Take a look at my quick video to see how our own little test drive went.

Also having a few sizing issues with the vid, but we're trying to fix these asap.] Read More.
