Strip Club Parking Lots Near Airports To Become Fabulous WiFi Zones

Avis is teaming up with Autonet Mobile to offer a WiFi hotspot that serves the rental car, and about a hundred foot radius around it.

Autonet Mobile's In-Car Router is about the size of a laptop and draws power from the car's cigarette lighter outlet. The hardware itself is a bridge for a cellular provider's 3G network (Avis will likely have contracts with 3G providers around the country), acting as a WiFi gateway for those connected to it. Other 3G-WiFi bridges are already available from the likes of Linksys and Kyocera, but this appears to be the first targeted exclusively at vehicles.
