After US carriers began rolling out unlimited subscription packs, it is now car makers have joined the play. Chevrolet, the first car maker, has announced that it will offer unlimited 4G LTE pack for drivers to use when they are on the roads. The new plan, which will be available from March 3rd, costs only $20 a month. Chevrolet in partnership with AT&T has announced the new unlimited plan, through which customers will get a prepaid OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, and avail unlimited data while driving the car.
“We have contractors bidding jobs in their Silverados, families streaming movies in their Suburbans and Malibus and everyone tapping into the cloud for music,” said Alan Batey, president of GM North America and global head of Chevrolet. “With the most affordable unlimited 4G LTE data plan in the auto industry, the widest availability of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and new connected services like OnStar AtYourService, our momentum can only grow.”
The company has claimed that the usage of in-car W-Fi has increased significantly last year which saw around 4 million gigabytes of data usage in 2016. According to the report, it was 200 percent more than the data used through its OnStar hotspots in 2015.
“We’re pleased to deliver this special unlimited data plan to Chevy owners,” said Chris Penrose, president, IoT Solutions, AT&T. “Accessing the internet through AT&T’s 4G LTE Wi-Fi, passengers now can access all of their content and enjoy endless entertainment on the go.”
Chevrolet is the first carmaker to offer unlimited 4G LTE across the entire auto portfolio, which has sold over 3.2 million OnStar 4G LTE connected devices since 2014. Chevrolet has more vehicles equipped with 4G LTE connectivity than any other automaker in the US.
