MONTRÉAL and MARKHAM — On Mar. 11, Bell and Honda Canada announced that new Honda and Acura vehicles are now equipped with built-in Wi-Fi hotspots that enable drivers and their passengers to stay connected online while on the open road.

“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 Vice President, 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.”

Ideal for mobile workers, commuters and families, will support browsing, streaming and sharing on up to 7 compatible devices with the built-in Wi-Fi hotspot. The hotspot supports devices connected up to 50 feet away from the vehicle.

“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 Vice President, Products and Services at Bell Mobility.
