2011 Subaru Outback Gets Wi-Fi Mobile Internet System
Subaru of America announced they’re offering Wi-Fi mobile Internet for the upgraded 2011 Outback SUV.
This mobile Internet service is a $499 option, plus a $35 activation fee. A one-year subscription at $29 per month is required, and Subaru is including the first three months of service for free.
This technology is provided by Autonet Mobile, the world’s first in-car Internet service provider. Operating on the 3G network and working with all Wi-Fi enabled devices, Subaru Mobile Internet provides users a safe, fully encrypted connection with download speeds averaging 400kbps-1.2mbps, and is accessible from 150 feet around the car.
Pricing for the 2011 Outback itself starts from $22,995. The car comes with a wide range of four- and six-cylinder models and has a brilliant 4×4 system in all models. The Internet option is currently for America only, which is relevant because in Europe the car is mostly bought by farmers, and they don’t really need Wi-Fi, do they!
