Montreal, Quebec — Bell Canada and Honda have teamed up to ensure that Canadian drivers are never offline when they’re on the road, as the automaker announced Thursday that all new Honda and Acura models will be equipped with built-in Wi-Fi hotspots.
“Like many consumers, Honda and Acura customers are looking for more convenient ways to stay connected, and our in-car Wi-Fi Hotspot powered by Bell provides the fast and reliable mobile connections they expect,” said Dave Jamieson, senior v-p of sales and marketing at Honda Canada.
“Our vehicles come fully equipped with the features and accessories you need to safely access the information you need on the go. Whether running errands or on a family road trip with all your gear, our Wi-Fi Hotspot enables drivers to stay fully connected while ensuring passengers can enjoy all their favourite online content.”
Drivers will be able to stream with up to seven devices through the Bell.ca/ConnectedCar program over Bell’s 4G network.
“Bell is proud to partner with Honda and Acura as we serve the growing number of Canadians who want mobile broadband access in their vehicles. Bell Connected Car makes your vehicle a powerful Wi-Fi hotspot, connecting your and your passengers’ devices with high-speed access automatically, just like at home,” said Nauby Jacob, senior v-p of products and services at Bell Mobility.
