Plans for limos with onboard Wi-Fi in New York
An American businessman has plans to roll out Wi-Fi enabled limos throughout New York and other cities in the US and even Europe by the end of 2011.
A fleet of Wi-Fi enabled chauffeur driven luxury sedans were launched in NYC back in the summer. A number of other features have also been installed in the high tech limousines to assist the technological savvy passengers.
A mobile phone charging point with 10 different plug adapters, plus an Enercell 300 Watt power converter for lap tops, and free connection to Sprint’s 3G Network with firewall and in-built encryption mechanism is all included onboard the limo for passenger convenience.
Chauffeurs of the new breed of limos say that almost all passengers make use of the Wi-Fi connectivity onboard the limousines.
Alex Masinsky is spearheading the new venture and plans to have 1,000 plus of these limos on the roads in New York by the end of the year.
The businessman, who founded booking reservation service Groundlink, is in talks to the roll the limo service out across other US cities and European destinations by the end of 2011. Masinsky hopes to increase the fleet from 1,000 limos to 10,000 in the space of 12 months.
