Ford to add Wi-Fi hotspot to some 2018 US models

Monday 9 January 2017 | 10:17 CET | News
Ford will equip some of its 2018 Ford vehicles with a Wi-Fi hotspot beginning this fall. Powered by the AT&T 4G LTE network, the Sync Connect hotspot can be used by up to 10 devices. When the vehicle is parked, it's signal reaches up to 50 feet outside the vehicle. With this equipment, drivers will be able to monitor data usage, signal strength and connected devices, as well as block certain devices and change settings on the Sync 3 touch screen. On top of that, they can use FordPass to view Wi-Fi data usage and link to AT&T's account management portal.
