Chevy Announces More Options for Customers Adding AT&T Unlimited Data Plan
Beginning May 12th, a Chevy owner with an in-vehicle OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot and AT&T wireless account can add unlimited data to their vehicle either by visiting any of the nearly 5,000 AT&T retail stores in the US, by going to att.com/connectedcar, or simply by logging into their MyATT account.
“With Chevrolet 4G LTE data plan sales jumping nearly 275 percent in March year-over-year, providing customers with additional choices as to where and how they buy data was important to us,” said Chevy marketing executive Paul Edwards. “Whether you are at a job site in your Silverado or letting your family stream videos on a road trip in your Traverse, Chevrolet owners will never be far from being able to sign up for an unlimited 4G LTE data plan.”

“More and more car owners are seeing the benefits of unlimited data on the go,” said Joe Mosele, AT&T’s vice-president of Internet of Things Solutions. “We are pleased to make this feature widely available for Chevrolet owners in our retail stores across the country. It’s now as easy as ever to sign up for in-vehicle unlimited data.”
The unlimited data plan allows Chevrolet owners to utilize the full potential of their OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot for $20 a month. The plan gives owners access to all of their content and the ability to enjoy endless entertainment while traveling, without the risk of overage fees (though AT&T may slow speeds after 22GB of data usage).
In early March, Chevrolet became the first mass-market automaker to offer a 4G LTE unlimited data plan for all of its customers. Chevy data usage has increased exponentially since then, with owners streaming video on tablet devices, sending emails on laptops, or playing games online. This past April, Chevrolet owners used 415% more data than in April of 2016.
