    A few months ago (or maybe a year ago) Musk said he would make the wifi hotspot available. Does anyone know when? I hear that Tesla's 4G LTE agreement with AT&T will expire sometime around the beginning of 2018. So, perhaps around then?

    With Tesla being the technology car, it is rather surprising that it still doesn't offer a wifi hotspot. I need it for my cloud dashcam.

    Musk responded to a Twitter question in May about adding hotspot capability to Teslas and said that it was possible, but they'd have to figure out how to bill for it. And that was the end of it.

    Never read too much into or put to much faith into Musk's Twitter musings — the only Elon Twitter posts worth concern are when he says "available now." Everything else is vapor.
