2012 Audi A8 Long Term Road Test

2012 Audi A8L: Future Audi A8L To Have 4G?

June 05, 2012


Good news, future Audi owners. Wireless communication manufacturer Sierra Wireless announced today that Audi is working on bringing 4G LTE connectivity to its infotainment system for future models. It's all still in the development and testing stage with drive tests having started late last year, and it has already been showcased at industry events like January's Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. But for those who like to stay plugged in while on the road (or blog at 70 mph) this news is exciting. Sure, not as exciting as making the whole world one big wifi hotspot or putting up more cell phone towers on the I-5 aka "Dead Zone," but still a step in the right direction.
