In light of the recent connectivity package announcement (or pre-announcement?), my immediate concern as a Tesla fanatic was segments of the Tesla fleet falling out of date without easy access to OTA updates (outside of the safety updates). The care free, always up-to-date nature of the Tesla fleet is a huge selling point (less so the free streaming music).
So my hope is Tesla increases the availability of wifi at their urban superchargers, and streamlines the connectivity to those supercharger wifi hotspots, so any time a driver who doesn't have wifi access in their garage or driveway will not see their Tesla fall out of date.
For those thinking that most Tesla owners have wifi near their Tesla: I agree, but that is going to change. Many new (especially Model 3) owners will not have wifi access near parking as Tesla ownership expands to people who charge primarily at superchargers (apartment dwellers).
Does this sort of move make sense to others?
