Chevrolet 4G Data Plans Cut in Half for Summer 2016 Holiday Season
Suburban Owners Highest Users of Built-In Connectivity
For the past two decades, General Motors has been ahead of the curve in vehicle telematics and technology. When OnStar first debuted in the late ‘90s, many questioned how many people would be willing to pay for telematics and driver assistance services. There are now many similar systems offered by other automakers. GM was once again ahead of the curve with offering 4G LTE service in nearly all of its vehicles, from entry-level economy cars all the way up to its premium models. Chevrolet is sweetening the deal once again by cutting its data plan pricing in half in time for the summer 2016 driving season.
In addition to lower pricing for its three data packages, it is offering a new 4 gigabyte (GB) a month package for the same price as its former 1 GB a month plan for $20 a month. The new pricing tiers are $10 a month for 1 GB, 4 GB a month for $20, 10 GB a month for $40, and 20 GB over 12 months for $150 for the year. Of Chevrolet model owners, Suburban drivers are the biggest users of built-in connectivity, with 60 percent using the service. The built-in WiFi hotspot can support as many as seven devices simultaneously. Data service is provided by AT&T and can be billed to your existing AT&T wireless account.
