Car rental company Hertz to offer MiFis: unlimited UK internet with your car

Hertz is now offering 3G+Wi-Fi pocket hotspots for rental. These pocket modems (known as "MiFis" in some countries) suck down Internet access over 3G mobile networks, and then generate a short-range Wi-Fi hotspot so you can connect your laptop, iPad, iPhone, Android device, BlackBerry or anything else that uses Wi-Fi to it. The devices on offer from Hertz are from the UK's Vodafone network, which is among the best for coverage and speed. If you're renting a car, the convenience factor of being able to pick up your Internet when you get to the car hire desk is a big plus.
