Let’s imagine you’re stuck in the car with your colleagues for hours on the way to a conference. If you’re using your own phone, you’re going to be concerned about the internet and data charges you rack up during the trip.
We at Wireless Analytics are fans of saving on mobile data, and we've found that there is a game-changer that resolves this issue! All major carriers are offering options for staying connected on the road, but T-Mobile is leading the way in regards to the Car Wi-Fi Market. They are getting some notable traction with their program, “SyncUp Drive”.
How Exactly Does This Work?
Users can plug devices to the OBD-II port of their cars. Users typically use this port to run diagnostics tests on their vehicle. This port can be used as a Wi-Fi hotspot for phones, tablets, and laptops. With T-Mobile’s Sync Drive program, the SyncUp Drive device contains both car diagnostics and Wi-Fi functionality within the same device.
Programs of this variety have been available on other major carriers like AT&T and Verizon, but depending on your needs, coverage, and budget, T-Mobile’s iteration of this may offer users the most bang for their buck.
You can get your car checked, and be connected, anytime and anywhere. T-Mobile’s program does both. AT&T requires two separate devices.
