In response to the growing customer demand for more data, Chevrolet and AT&T are making it easier for Chevrolet owners to add an AT&T unlimited data plan to their vehicle.

Starting May 12, a Chevrolet owner with an in-vehicle

can add unlimited data to their vehicle at any of the nearly 5,000 AT&T retail stores in the U.S., by visiting or 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 Paul Edwards, Chevrolet U.S. vice president of Marketing. “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.”

For $20 a month, the unlimited data plan allows Chevrolet owners to utilize the full potential of their OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot and access all of their content and enjoy endless entertainment on the go without worrying about paying overages (After 22GB of data usage, AT&T may slow speeds.).

“More and more car owners are seeing the benefits of unlimited data on the go,” said Joe Mosele, vice president, Internet of Things Solutions, AT&T. “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.”

Chevrolet became the first mass-market automaker to offer a 4G LTE unlimited data plan for all customers in early March. Since then, Chevrolet data usage has increased exponentially as owners have come to appreciate the ability to stream video on a tablet, send email on a laptop or play online using a gaming console in their vehicles. Last month, Chevrolet owners used 415 percent more data than in April 2016.

As the first automaker to offer 4G LTE connectivity across its entire retail portfolio, Chevrolet has sold 3.5 million OnStar 4G LTE-connected vehicles since June 2014.

OnStar 4G LTE, which is enabled by AT&T, was introduced across the Chevrolet portfolio for the 2015 model year in the U.S. and Canada. Today, a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot is standard equipment on all new Chevrolet retail models along with the OnStar Basic Plan, which also features remote vehicle access and the AtYourService marketplace via the myChevrolet mobile app[6] among other features.
