Twenty years ago, getting an internet connection from your car would have seemed like something out of a sci-fi movie. Well, it’s now a present day reality. Now when you buy a newer Chevy vehicle, you can get unlimited OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot data for only $20 a month. Thanks to the partnership between Chevy, OnStar, and AT&T, for 20 bucks a month you can stream Netflix videos wherever your car is and not have to worry about getting charged for extra data.
This new plan makes Chevrolet the first major car company to offer unlimited data. It really makes sense for them too. According to Chevrolet, data usage in Chevy cars has increased by a whopping 200 percent in the last year alone. People are loving being able to stream movies, send emails, play video games, and conduct business online straight from their cars and trucks. In 2016 alone, Chevy owners and their passengers streamed the equivalent of more than 17.5 million hours of video.
“We have contractors bidding jobs in their Silverados, families streaming movies in their Suburbans and Malibus, and everyone tapping into the cloud for music.” This was a statement from Alan Batey, the current president of GM North America and global head of Chevrolet. “We’re pleased to deliver this special unlimited data plan… passengers can now access all of their content and enjoy endless entertainment on the go.”
Before now, OnStar was charging $10 a month for 1 gig of data and $20 a month for 4 gigs. Now, they will still offer 1 gigabyte for $10 a month, but $20 a month will get you unlimited data. It works by turning the media system in your Chevy vehicle into a Wi-Fi hotspot, so you can connect to it just like you would with any Wi-Fi connection. With this new unlimited data plan, you’ll be able to stream the latest Packers or Timberwolves game, even during your family road trip to the cabin.
