It is pretty Good but LTE is Horrible Max I am getting is 3 MBPS but on Wifi gives me a full 103MBPS same as home Laptop on wifi.
According to the local Tesla tech, the sensitivity of the car's LTE setup is significantly lower than that of the typical cellphone. So you'd really need a strong signal for reasonably quick page updates.

The local Tesla tech is not an RF engineer. ;) With coax running to antennas in both side mirrors for MIMO and diversity gain it will be more sensitive than a phone anywhere in the interior of the car, and indeed the car holds signal better in rough areas in this case during my testing with our test devices. But the modem itself is much less capable performance wise than a typical late model handset. It doesn't support all the bands we use, only supports 2x2 mimo, and only supports 2 way carrier aggregation. This is plenty for the car's main use of streaming music, loading maps, and passing bits of data back and forth to Tesla. I should probably add on to my LTE modem specs thread before we get a lot of "Why is my throughput so bad" posts.

Does it support plugins? Would be awesome to do Zoom meetings on the big screen. I often join work meetings while on my stop-and-go commute, and people screen share. I would rather glance at my M3 screen when stopped than my tiny phone screen.

We need less distraction when driving, not more.

The browser is nice to have, but it is slow. It’s a little hard to tap on the links. Also won’t play video. I wish it would at least work on Youtube. Doesn’t have the right codecs. Maybe they will allow this in the future? I guess it would also need audio out to the car speakers which it doesn’t seem to have.

The favorties don’t seem to save for me either. I hit the heart icon but the page never goes into the favorites folder.

if people mention the addresses that DO work here, I'll add them into the 1st post :D
All of these work fine for me, are you seeing a problem? Are you saying that the Model 3 can’t use these? These come from Model S people, so can’t vouch, but they look great on my iPad.

I tried accessing tesla.com in browser this morning and nothing happened. I will check again and report back.
Nothing was working in my browser either after I got to work. It needed a two-finger salute, but it is still completely intolerable on anything but the simplest web pages.
