Chevrolet offers unlimited 4G data plan with cars Chevrolet has become the first automaker to offer an unlimited data plan to owners of its vehicles.
In partnership with AT&T, owners of Chevrolet vehicles with an in-vehicle OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot can avail of an unlimited prepaid data plan for only $20 per month, starting Friday, March 3.

According to Chevrolet, drivers of its vehicles used more than 4 million gigabytes of data in 2016, which was twice as much as the previous year. To put this data usage in perspective, Chevrolet owners and their passengers streamed the equivalent of more than 17.5 million hours of video in 2016.

Since June 2014, Chevrolet has sold more than 3.1 million OnStar 4G LTE-connected vehicles, meaning it has more LTE-connected cars on the road than any other carmaker.

"We're pleased to deliver this special unlimited data plan to Chevy owners," said Chris Penrose, president, IoT Solutions, AT&T.

"Accessing the internet through AT&T's 4G LTE Wi-Fi, passengers now can access all of their content and enjoy endless entertainment on the go."
