Telefonica has announced the imminent launch of a service designed to make cars smarter and safer by adding on board Wi-Fi connectivity via a simple router that connects to the vehicle's on-board diagnostics (OBD) port. The operator's new 'Movistar Car' service will be rolled out all over Spain from February 2019 and can be ordered starting on 31 January for an activation fee of EUR 20 and a monthly cost of EUR 3. Once plugged in, the device creates an exclusive Wi-Fi network with 3GB per month of data at 4G speeds to which up to 5 devices can connect at the same time.
