We get the first mobile broadband taxis in the world.
SmarTone-Vodafone and Hong Kong CSL are doing a 3 month trial of broadband services on 100 taxis giving laptops download speeds of up to 3.6 megabits per second. This is NOT Wi-Fi, this is private broadband lines with easy to use connection set-ups.
Passengers can simply plug their laptops into the USB modem while they ride in one of these taxis, and SmarTone-Vodafone Mobile Broadband will enable them to enjoy free web browsing, email access and downloads via Hong Kongâ€™s first and best HSDPA network. Customers can enjoy this super fast broadband connection everywhere in Hong Kong.
I dont usually have that long of a taxi trip around Hong Kong side – maximum 15 minutes, but I guess if you routinely get stuck in the tunnel to Kowloon or stuck in Central then this would be perfect.
