London Minicab Firm Installs Wi-Fi in 300 Cars; Makes Leaving Your Phone in One Even More Likely

By Gary Cutlack on at

London-based eco-friendly minicab company Greentomatocars is claiming to be the first fleet of cabs to offer full Wi-Fi to its passengers, with its 300-strong fleet all now offering a 7.2Mbps 3G hotspot for enhancing your journey home.

The fleet's service works courtesy of a networked SIM card inside each car provided by Wireless Logic, which generates a welcome mobile hotspot in and around the vehicle. Well worth paying £5 a mile for that sort of service. It's free to use, with the password proudly displayed inside the car, so you won't even have to beg the driver for access.
