AT&T and ZTE USA are now offering the ZTE Mobley™, AT&T’s first plug-in vehicle Wi-Fi hotspot, starting Sept. 11, in AT&T stores and online at www.att.com/mobley. The ZTE Mobley allows up to five devices to connect to the internet and use the hotspot data plan to surf the Web, play games and watch videos all on the nation’s most reliable LTE network.
Installation and setup is a breeze. Simply plug in the ZTE Mobley into your vehicle’s OBD II (on-board diagnostics) port. It works with most vehicles 1996 and newer. Once plugged in, there is no need for charging cables for the device. Your vehicle automatically powers the ZTE Mobley to create a Wi-Fi connection in a matter of seconds.
