If you’re in Las Vegas to cover the International Consumer Electronics Show 2016 and have been there in the past then you’ll most certainly be aware that there’s a constant need to be online which can sometimes prove to be a bit difficult owing to the sheer number of people that end up in Vegas for CES 2016. Ride sharing service Uber is looking to take some of that pain away by providing Wi-Fi in its cars during the upcoming trade show.

Uber launched its services in Las Vegas back in September this year, available options include UberX, Uber Select and UberXL. The Wi-Fi hotspot will be available across all options.

For this purpose Uber has teamed up with Vinli and T-Mobile to equip cars operating in Las Vegas during the week of the trade show with Wi-Fi. The cars will essentially be mobile hotspots that will enable riders to remain connected even when they’re being driven from one venue to the other.

Considering the fact that most of the people who are going to attend CES 2016 will be well aware of what Uber is, many would certainly choose to hail a car through this service instead of waiting in very long queues for a taxi, saving them both time and money with the added convenience of having a mobile hotspot in the car.
