Autonet Mobile, claims to be the first car-ISP, notes Engadget. The $399 Autonet wireless unit provides in-car WiFi and cellular EV-DO for the backbone. They claim it will provide service on up to 95 percent of US roads for $50 a month when it’s launched this spring on AVIS rent-a-car and for consumers.

Autonet sees its service appealing to families traveling with children, although its unit is expected to cost $399, about twice as much as current cellular card technology, plus $49 a month for service.

Sprint also offers three EVDO Rev A PCMICIA cards: the Novatel S720, Sierra AC595 and Pantech PX-500 as well as the Linksys Broadband Router ($249) with EVDO RevA backhaul.
