comma prime is an MVNO, meaning we sell mobile service to all of you in the United States. Although you are buying service through comma, it should have coverage everywhere a certain major cell network does. It’s unlimited, meaning you can’t run out. It is capped to 512 kbps of bandwidth.
All comma devices ship with a comma prime SIM card and include 3 free months of comma prime (initiated on ship date). Visit connect.comma.ai to claim your free comma prime.
With our new qlog infrastructure, you should be able to upload your routes in real time. And in the app, we’ll be rolling out more and more features that benefit from having an always connected device. We also have an SSH proxy that is available with comma prime. This, combined with the cell phone service, allows you to access your device remotely from anywhere. You’ll also have remote access to all the other methods in athena using our API.
When you enter your GitHub username on your device under Developer Settings, your GitHub authorized public keys will become your authorized SSH keys for ssh.comma.ai. See ssh.comma.ai for further instructions.
comma does not have and does not want remote access to your device (unlike certain electric car companies), because your device is yours. You alone control your private key for remote access. Our security model is the same as SSH, so a compromise would likely mean someone has gained access to your private key (or an OpenSSH 0-day just compromised 80% of the internet!). comma does not have your private key and a comma employee will never ask you for your private key.
