    I also saw that the wi-fi option is not yet available. But everywhere I read that there are working on it.

    Glad to see I am not the only one that want to do this

    Wouldn't the annual service/maintenance fee cover that ?

    Need the connectivity to provide the remote diagnostics and software updates

    @zapped; It sounds like there will be at least a low-bandwidth connection no matter what (for diagnostics, etc), but Tesla is planning on releasing prices for connuctivity packages which will be for browsing/google maps nav/internet radio. Right now everyone is getting it free but that won't last (Sigs for a year, I don't know what's happening with US P's getting delivery now). But since in Tesla Time last month is ancient news, I could be wrong.

    If I'm correct, then I would like to browse in my S for no "extra" cost in a year, using my current (and decent $) Rogers "4g", which will hopefully convert to LTE soon in my area.

    So now that most of us have our deliveries scheduled, does anyone know who the provider is yet?

    I was at the Yorkdale store today, and they wouldn't tell me.

    We can suss it out, at least the provider of the airwaves anyway. Drive the car to a place where one of the carriers is known to have lousy signal. Try 3G.

    I asked at the Vancouver event today and was told AT&T.
    I'm guessing they partner with Telus. My Telus phone connects to AT&T when I'm in the US.

    Telus & Rogers ?
    Probably doesn't matter for now.
    Would be nice to have some options when we have to pay a year from now.
