An anonymous reader writes "Comcast engineers want to put WiFi transceivers in rental cars, taxis, buses and even on humans to extend reach of its Xfinity WiFi network. They also detail an idea for offering incentives to drivers to move WiFi-enabled cars to areas where it needs WiFi coverage. The plan was detailed in a patent application published today by the USPTO (I wrote a story about it for FierceCable)."
Speaking of extension, this sounds like a logical outgrowth of using wireless routers to grow the network
. (I hope they choose their humans carefully
, if this plan bears fruit.)
