Owners of new General Motors vehicle can soon begin adding their connected cars to AT&T's 4G LTE as a device on a Mobile Share Plan starting this June. Starting for just $10 per month, AT&T and GM customers can add their GM vehicles to their existing data bucks. For GM car owners who do not currently subscribe to AT&T, other data packages are also available for the new OnStar 4G LTE plan.
Starting in June, Chevrolet owners can add their Malibu to the OnStar 4G LTE plan. After a trial period, which is either a 3-month or 3 GB of usage, whichever happens first, users will be able to pay $5 for 250 MB of data that will expire after one day or up to a 100 GB package that lasts for 12 months for $200. GM will offer discounted rates for users who already subscribe to OnStar.
By the end of the year, GM promises that AT&T's connectivity will come to thirty more cars from brands like Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, and GMC.
The nice part is that if you're an existing AT&T subscriber, you can just add your car to your existing plan for just $10 a month if you're on one of AT&T's Mobile Share Plan. This makes it more affordable and you would just tap your existing mobile data connection. This means your car will be another data device that joins your iPad tablet or your Galaxy smart camera.
"The industry's broadest deployment of 4G LTE connectivity technology will enable owners of these vehicles to explore new features like a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot capable of pairing up to seven devices, as well as [improved access]((http://www.imore.com/chevys-appshop-skips-smartphone-vehicle-apps-ceslive) to existing OnStar safety and security services," GM said in a press release.
In addtion to GM, Audi is also partnering with AT&T for the A3 sedan.
