GM Becomes First Automaker to Offer AT&T Connected Car Data Plans for Business Customers
Beginning this summer, customers with GM Fleet corporate accounts can activate OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspots in millions of vehicles, providing the ability to share unlimited data and receive simplified invoices with centralized billing.
“Customers using an OnStar 4G LTE connection can help make their company vehicle drivers more customer-focused and productive, so the growth potential is huge,” said Ed Peper, US vice president of GM Fleet at the GM Fleet Solutions Summit in Las Vegas. “Working with AT&T, we will enable our business customers to receive all the benefits of high-speed connectivity with more flexibility and less paperwork using the shared unlimited data plan capability.”

“With this capability, businesses can more quickly and more securely share data, better attend to customers, boost productivity and maximize efficiencies,” said Joe Mosele, vice president of Internet of Things Solutions at AT&T. “This will be transformative for companies that need to get things done outside the office. It’s just the beginning of new enterprise options that we plan to bring to business customers.”
GM Fleet customers with the 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot will enjoy secure connections for up to seven smartphones, tablets and laptops; the sharing of near real-time information in the field; and connections that extend up to 50 feet from the vehicle.
GM Fleet customers will also get to enjoy unlimited data plans, data pooling across vehicles, and corporate invoicing that will add vehicle plans to existing AT&T corporate accounts.
GM launched OnStar with 4G LTE Wi-Fi service back in 2014, and today is the industry leader, with over 5 million 4G LTE-equipped vehicles on the road. In total, GM customers have used more than 14 million gigabytes of data since the launch of OnStar 4G LTE.
