Get 4G in your car


By CHONG JINN XIUNG bytz@thestar.com.my

KUALA LUMPUR: National carmaker Proton and YTL Communication’s Yes broadband service are collaborating to offer what are claimed to be the country’s first “4G-enabled Internet cars” next month.

Proton said its customers will enjoy Yes broadband service as a value-added feature in new Proton models starting with its upcoming P3-21A sedan, also known as the Tuah.

It is known that the Tuah will have lots of nifty new features like a photochromatic glass roof that darkens automatically at varying degrees, reverse sensor with camera and adaptive headlights that turn in relation to the steering wheel.

Based on the special edition Yes 4G Proton Inspira that was unveiled on Feb 22, we can tell that future Proton cars will come with a Yes Huddle 4G mobile hotspot that will allow up to five devices to connect to the Yes network.

Aside from that Proton and Yes said they are looking to deliver smart applications in the future cars such as location-based services, real-time vehicle diagnostics and security.

No further details were announced on the price of the Tuah or the Yes subscription plan that is to come bundled with the car.
