Avis plans WiFi router in rentals

Avis Rent-A-Car plans to roll out a new service in select markets that will allow renters to connect laptops and other wireless devices through a portable WiFi router that plugs into the vehicle's cigarette lighter. Renters are charged $10.95 a day. Avis plans to launch the service officially today in San Francisco with additional service coming to nine major cities by the end of the month and another 100 cities within the next six months. The service is designed with business travelers and families on vacation in mind. The router enables multiple people to browse the Internet while on the road.
