Proton and Yes team up to offer Malaysia's first 4G-connected car, promise more to come

The first one may only amount to a MiFi housed in the dash (although that does come standard), but automaker Proton and Malaysian carrier Yes seem to have some fairly grand designs on 4G-connected cars. In addition to providing a WiFi hotpot for passengers, they eventually hope to use the 4G connectivity for a range of automotive-related applications, including vehicle diagnostics, security, and other location-based services. Notably for potential buyers, Yes’s 4G coverage of Malyasia is fairly widespread, encompassing over 65 percent of the country’s populated areas and the full 960 kilometer stretch of the country’s North-South Expressway, as well as a “large portion” of its East-Coast Expressway. While details on those promised services or any future cars remain a bit light, that first one (the P3-21A sedan) will apparently soon be available.
