Mobile broadband news

Audi's luxury A8 L saloon could soon come complete with broadband connectivity, it has been reported.

For the past few months, the German vehicle manufacturer has been working with telecoms firm Alcatel-Lucent on an in-car 4G broadband service.

Reports last year suggested that Audi was developing a fitted broadband system for the A8 L, and a full prototype has now been built.

Should the manufacturer press ahead with its plans, long-term evolution (LTE) technology will be used to allow car passengers to download at speeds of up to 100Mb.

Michael Dick, from Audi Technical Development, said the firm is aiming to use LTE technology to "extend its advantage" in automotive networking.

He added that the latest innovation would help further consolidate the Audi connect strategy, by offering mobile broadband access in the fast lane.
