Nov 09, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
The Hertz Corp., a general use car rental brand, has introduced a portable Wi-Fi service in Australia in a first for the country's car rental industry.
Hertz has introduced pocket-sized 3G units for rent to enable customers to connect to the Internet from anywhere in Australia for a fraction of the cost of mobile roaming or hotel Internet charges.
The Company reported that the launch builds on the success of the company's mobile Wi-Fi program in New Zealand, UK, Spain and the Canary Islands.
According to a release, the portable WiFi units can be rented from Hertz's airport locations in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide, Darwin and Cairns. The rechargeable Wi-Fi units offer secure, high-speed Internet coverage for up to five hours and a generous daily data limit of 150 megabytes, enabling business and leisure travellers, both domestic and international, to stay connected throughout their journey in Australia.
For business travellers, the mobile Wi-Fi units enable email connections and ongoing contact with the office, customers or family at home, as well as enabling simultaneous connection of up to five devices including laptop computers, smart phones and tablets.
Hertz has partnered with technology company IDataRoam International Limited to provide the mobile Wi-Fi service, which is already being used successfully in New Zealand.
