[1] Ford offers a remarkable option to add Internet access to an auto: Unlike automakers who have signed up to build in the Autonet Mobile system, a Wi-Fi gateway with a built-in cell modem, Ford is opting for a bit of openness.

USB modems are offered by all carriers, including Virgin Mobile's currently unique pay-as-you-go plan.
