Comcast Visualizes a Mobile WiFi Network

Thinking out of the box is a great way to stay ahead of your competition and Comcast has applied for a patent to give the company an edge in area coverage. The patent applied for is titled simply ‘Mobile WiFi Network’ and is exactly what it sounds like. The plan would use transceivers on just about anything mobile to relay data to cell towers.

The patent application discloses a method for further expanding its Wi-Fi coverage by placing Wi-Fi transceivers in rental cars and taxis and discusses how Comcast may be able to motivate drivers to move Wi-Fi equipped vehicles to areas where it needs coverage.
