Chevrolet Launches In-Vehicle Unlimited Data Plan

By Ken Briodagh March 03, 2017

Starting today, Chevrolet owners in the U.S. with an in-vehicle OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot will now have access to an unlimited prepaid data plan for $20 per month, according to a recent announcement. Chevrolet will offer this plan, enabled by AT&T, across its entire retail lineup.

Last year, Chevrolet owners in the U.S. used more than 4 million gigabytes of data. Chevrolet has reported that its data usage has increased exponentially as owners have come to appreciate the ability to stream video on a tablet, send email on a laptop or play online using a gaming console in their vehicles, and now customers can use the full potential of their OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot without worrying about running out of data.

“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, GM North America and global head, 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.”

Last year alone, Chevrolet customers used nearly 200 percent more OnStar 4G LTE data in their vehicles compared to 2015. To put this data usage in perspective, Chevrolet owners and their passengers streamed the equivalent of more than 17.5 million hours of video in 2016.

“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 has sold more than 3.1 million OnStar 4G LTE-connected vehicles since June

2014 and has more vehicles on the road equipped with 4G LTE than any other automaker.
