Chevrolet Offers Owners Unlimited 4G LTE

Chevrolet was among the first automakers to roll out 4g LTE WiFi in the vehicle, now they are the first to offer unfettered access to said data. Chevy is joining the wireless industry trend of offering all-you-can-eat unlimited data access in the vehicle.

Chevy is saying that the new unlimited data plan will only cost customers $20 a month. They are calling this plan a pre-paid plan, meaning you must pay a month ahead, but that’s a small consolation given the price point. In contrast, $20 used to get you only 4GB of AT&T 4G LTE data per month for you Chevy vehicle.

“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.”

According to Chevy, owners are gobbling up tons of data inside their vehicles. The brand claims their customers streamed the equivalent of 17.5 million hours of video in 2016 alone.

Chevrolet already offers 4G LTE WiFi across its entire retail vehicle portfolio, so owners will have no problem opting for the new unlimited plan if they so choose to.

At the time of this article it isn’t immediately clear if Buick, Cadillac and GMC will also gain access to the new OnStar plan (EDIT – Yes, the new unlimited plan will be offered on all GM products). Nonetheless, interested Chevrolet owners can hit their blue OnStar button or head over OnStar’s website to switch plans.

    Legitimately good deal especially if you have a lot of kids and spend a lot of time in the car. They can stream their movies and what not without much interruption.

    And of course business users in construction or mobile sales can easily make use of this.


    It is a very good deal. I suspect GM is on the verge of announcing some new streaming services that will make the connection more valuable.
