Ford Partners With Bell
Built-in Wi-Fi hotspots in Ford and Lincoln vehicles will be powered by Bell.
Bell has announced that Ford and Lincoln vehicles will be equipped with built-in Wi-Fi hotspots via Bell’s Connected Car – Built In service.
“Drivers and their passengers can now connect to Wi-Fi just as conveniently in their Ford and Lincoln vehicles as they do in their homes,” said Nauby Jacob, Vice President of Products and Services at Bell Mobility.
The Wi-Fi hotspot features a dedicated external antenna, supports up to 10 devices at a time, and is powered by the vehicle’s electrical system.
“Having reliable Wi-Fi on the go is no longer just ‘nice to have’ – it’s become a ‘must-have,’ and Ford recognizes that,” said Marc Vejgman, Connected Vehicle Marketing Manager for Ford of Canada. “Connecting our vehicles is part of building smart vehicles for a smart world, and we look forward to working with Bell to offer Ford customers another way to stay connected across Canada.”
Bell Connected Car – Built In will be available for supported Ford and Lincoln vehicles beginning November 6, 2018.
