Wireless Internet could be coming to a vehicle near you.
Rogers Communications and Sprint announced a joint venture Thursday that will allow Sprint to use Rogers' infrastructure to give people a wireless connection in their vehicles.
"Canadians want to be connected from anywhere, at any time, and with over twenty million vehicles on the road in Canada there is a strong growth opportunity for Rogers in the connected auto segment," Rogers vice president of advanced business solutions Mansell Nelson said in a release.
The technology will be available in vehicles that come with Sprint Velocity, currently only available in the U.S.
A report in March 2012 by Juniper Research found nearly 100 million cars will be connected to wireless Internet by 2016.
