If you can imagine taking the wireless router you may have in your house and putting it in your car, that’s pretty much what’s going on here. It even looks like a regular old router, though it would be installed out of sight in a CTS’ trunk. The only difference here is it gets its incoming signal not from cable or DSL but from cellular networks, then puts it back into the air in the customary home/coffee-shop/airport format.
I connected to the CTS with my Cars.com-issue ThinkPad as I would at any of those other hotspots and, voila, I had a working browser. I fired up a Cars.com video to see how it handled the download, and it took a while to buffer — about 30 seconds — but then it played through with only one pause midway. (Hey, this Kelsey Mays is dynamite!)
