On Monday, General Motors gave additional details on the ability of their future cars to access AT&T’s cellular network through OnStar’s information and emergency aid services.
“The 2015 Chevrolet Malibu will be the first of a fleet of more than 30 GM models that will come with a 4G LTE connection powered by AT&T this year. Customers get either three months or 3 gigabytes of data as part of a free trial, and can re-up with plans that range between $5 and $50.”
AT&T customers will be able to add a connected car to their mobile share plan for an additional $10 a month. With an LTE connection, the car can act as a Wi-Fi hotspot that can connect up to seven devices. Customers will have the following plan options per month:
- 200MB – $10
- 1GB – $20
- 3GB – $30
- 5GB – $50
AT&T rewards customers can buy 10GBs to 20GBs per month for between $100 to $150, which can be divided among all of a family’s smartphones, tablets or cars.
