Adding to its roster of forward-thinking automaker partners who are building WiFi into their premium brands, Autonet Mobile announced on March 19 an agreement with Cadillac to equip the CTS Sports Sedan with full internet access. Beginning in April, Cadillac will provide WiFi by Autonet Mobile in their vehicles for every passenger. Autonet Mobile and Cadillac will be showing the new router together at the New York International Auto Show, April 10-19 at the Jacob Javits Convention Center.
The partnership will deliver the first internet entertainment system for Cadillac, and one of the first in the luxury auto market. Branded as Cadillac WiFi by Autonet Mobile, the system is based on the company's latest generation mobile router, a new smaller unit that allows consumers to easily transfer it from car to car via a new docking station. The system is one-third smaller and incorporates an internal WiFi antenna which fits the sleek new Cadillac interiors. Now Cadillac customers will have instant internet access anytime and anywhere for work during the week to check email, upload files, get directions and traffic updates and make travel plans, and then transfer it to the family car for weekend road trips. Cadillac WiFi by Autonet Mobile will be available in the CTS line beginning in April at Cadillac dealerships nationwide. Monthly subscription plans start at $29.
