As one of several perks on the redesigned model, the all-new 2018 Honda Odyssey holds the distinction of being the first minivan to offer 4G LTE in-vehicle Wi-Fi.

For as low as $20 a month, American owners of the 2018 Odyssey Elite and Touring trims can now purchase both prepaid and postpaid unlimited data plans from AT&T. Honda is promising that these data plans will take the Odyssey’s in-car connectivity experience to a new level, enabling the minivan to support streaming video, music, and more.

Through the vehicle’s available 4G LTE Wi-Fi, Odyssey passengers can stream video content to the all-new, 10.2-inch, ceiling-mounted Rear Entertainment System with DVD, CD, and Blu-ray disc capability. The AT&T data capability also allows for the whole family to enjoy internet radio, web browsing, and more on up to seven devices.

Available on the Odyssey Touring and Elite models, the AT&T data plans include a 3-months/3GB complimentary trial, followed by the customer-paid subscription plan.

“As any parent can tell you, keeping everyone connected is a big part of modern family happiness,” said Honda executive Jeff Conrad. “With our new CabinWatch and CabinTalk technologies, reconfigurable Magic Slide seats and 4G LTE Wi-Fi, the new Odyssey is all about keeping everyone connected and comfortable.”
