Yes, we’re talking about that Chevrolet – the major car manufacturer. While in-car LTE plans have been in the US for quite some time now, it’s only recently that drivers have an option for unlimited LTE data packages.
Starting March 3, Chevrolet will be rolling out unlimited 4G LTE data, including a WiFi hotspot, for eligible car owners at $20 (~Php 1K) a month, as a prepaid service. OnStar, a subsidiary of General Motors, will be handling the LTE back-end services.
According to Engadget, Chevrolet has sold around 3.1 million OnStar LTE-equipped vehicles, topping the charts over all other car manufacturers. Chevy customers have also streamed 4 million gigabytes of LTE data in 2016, doubling figures from the previous year.
Data from Chevrolet details that work-related throughput consumed the most data among subscribers. Families using their in-car connection for movie and video watching came in second, with music streaming coming in at third place. Chevrolet gets its data from AT&T.
