LAS VEGAS, Sept. 8, 2015AT&T⃰⃰ 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.

“The ZTE Mobley is our first Wi-Fi plug-in for the car. It’s great for everyone - families, entertainment enthusiasts and professionals,” said Chris Penrose, senior vice president, Internet of Things (IoT), AT&T Mobility. “It allows multiple Wi-Fi-capable devices to connect to AT&T’s 4G LTE network, making it perfect for anyone on-the-go.”
