Chevrolet Brings 4G LTE Wi-Fi Connectivity To The Car

Published

on

Did you know that Chevrolet is the first and only car company to bring built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi to cars, trucks and crossovers? That’s right, Chevrolet understands everyone’s need to be connected to the Internet 24/7, and they’re offering this service on a large number of their 2015 models. From four-door sedans like the Impala and Malibu to sports cars like the SS and Corvette!

As someone who spends entirely too much time on the road, I can’t tell you how great it would be if I could pull over at a rest stop, whip out my laptop and connect to the web. Whether it’s to write a quick story for Guys Gab, catch up on some e-mails or just waste some time on YouTube. The ability to do these things would be huge!

But wait, it gets better. The available OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi offers great signal quality and bandwidth for up to seven devices. That means that you can keep kids of all ages occupied on long road trips with video games, movies and social media. And when they’re engaged, that means no more cries of “Are we there yet?” from the back seat!

While some cell phone carriers allow you to turn your phone into a mobile hotspot, if you’ve ever tried that you know that the experience is less than ideal. The available OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot provides a better in-vehicle experience than your smartphone, with a stronger signal that delivers a fast, reliable connection.

Pricing for this service is very reasonable as well. Your first three months or 3GB of data are included with the purchase of the vehicle. After that, select a plan from OnStar that’s right for you.

OnStar subscribers can add 200MB of data for just $5/mo, 1GB for $15/mo, 3GB for $30/mo, and 5GB for $50/mo. Non-OnStar subscribers can get the same access for $10, $20, $30 and $50 respectively.

If you’re an existing AT&T customers, a 4G LTE Wi-Fi-equipped GM vehicle can be added to a Mobile Share Plan for $10 per month.

Chevrolet is also offering two one-time purchase packages, ideal for those people who just need connectivity for a family road trip or similar short-term use. A one-day 250MB purchase costs $5, and a 10GB 12-month purchase costs $150 ($5 and $200 respectively for non-subscribers).

Overall, I think this is a great service offering by Chevrolet. One that’s sure to resonate with consumers who demand constant Internet connectivity.
