Rogers Working on Getting WiFi in Cars

The connected car revolution is slowly making its way to Canada.  And if Rogers has its way, your car will be just another device to them–not that this is a bad thing.  From the Globe and Mail:

Rogers Communications Inc. is partnering with Sprint Corp. to introduce a “connected car” wireless service next year that will provide Canadians with high-speed Internet access while they are on the road.

The agreement between the two carriers, which will be announced Thursday, enables auto makers that deploy the Sprint Velocity system – as Chrysler Group does on some of its U.S. vehicles – to use Rogers’ cellular networks to provide equipped vehicles with a wireless connection. That, in turn, will allow Canadians using the system to turn their cars into living rooms on wheels.

Keep reading because this is going to usher in a massive shift in what we do while we’re driving.
