Staying connected has become more and more of a necessity these days. We use our smartphones and devices not just for entertainment, but to keep up with work and navigate routes while traveling.

Stay Connected with High-Speed Wi-Fi Hotspot from Ford
This fall, select 2018 Ford models will feature a Wi-Fi hotspot from Ford. Ford has built connectivity into the available SYNC® Connect. With a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot by AT&T, your vehicle will offer a connection to up to ten devices, allowing passengers to stream videos, read articles, and search social media sites. The connectivity doesn’t stop when you turn the engine off because when the vehicle is parked, you’ll be able to connect within 50 feet.
“SYNC Connect allows travelers to stay connected and entertained on the go,” said Don Butler, executive director, Ford Connected Vehicle and Services. “The new Wi-Fi hotspot capability will allow kids to easily watch movies and listen to music, or, if you’re on the job, to quickly send emails and access the web from wherever you are.”
By using the SYNC® 3 touchscreen, users can access setting and block usage. With the FordPass® app, users can monitor data usage and access AT&T settings. Ford owners can either use an existing AT&T plan to share data, or can purchase a new standalone data plan. Three months or 3 GB of data (whichever comes first) is offered as a trial.
