A London minicab firm has become the first car company in Europe to offer free Wi-Fi to its passengers.
Customers using Greentomatocars’ cabs can surf the internet on the go by using the password ‘ilovefreewifi’.
The download speed of the Wi-Fi is of up to 7.2Mb/sec and upload speed is of up to 2Mb/sec.
Unlike free Wi-Fi on the tube, available only until the end of Paralympic Games, the company hasn’t put an expiry date on the service.
Jonny Goldstone, Greentomatocars’ founder, said: “You don’t have to work in the technology industry to see the importance of connectivity. With free in-car Wi-Fi we are able to offer our customers the access they need to stay connected.
“Summer 2012 is well and truly upon us so for all of those people who happen to find themselves travelling around London when the action is on, they’ll never miss a moment of sport or a medal ceremony in the back of one of our cars.”
Billed as “London’s alternative to Addison Lee and Black Taxis,” Greentomatocars was established in 2006 as London’s first green minicab company.
