The General Motors division has announced on Sunday, duringthe 2014 International CES show in Las Vegas, that it would deploy 4G LTE connections on several models to help motorists who want to stay connected with the growing number of apps for automobiles.
The addition of LTE is in partnership with AT&T and up to seven devices can be supported with a vehicle’s 4G LTE service, where customers can add on to their current data plan or an individual plan. Pricing for OnStar 4G LTE hasn’t yet been announced.
“Chevrolet is expected to implement the broadest deployment of 4G LTE in the automotive industry. The fact that OnStar with 4G LTE will be available in models that range from the Chevrolet Spark to the Silverado to the Corvette, is indicative of our broad commitment to deliver more value and convenience through smart technology applications. This new, purposeful technology solution will make our consumers lives easier to connect,” said Senior Vice President of Global Chevrolet, Alan Batey.
The 4G LTE cars will for now only be sold in the United States and Canada.
