If you’re a Chevy owner using OnStar 4G LTE do we have some good news for you.
Chevrolet is cutting data plans by up to 50 percent just in time for your July 4th weekend road trips. So say you were paying $80 for a 10 gigabyte monthly plan, now you’ll pay $40.
Chevy says it’s sold 2.1 million vehicles equipped with OnStar 4G LTE-connected tech since 2014. Suburban drivers use the technology the most. Chevy says more than 60 percent of Suburban owners and passengers use their OnStar LTE Wi-Fi hotspot. Tahoe and Traverse hotspot usage isn’t far behind. Those vehicles can connect up to seven devices to the hotspot.
The Chevy Silverado accounts for the highest data usage, with customers consuming more than 1 million gigabytes of data since Chevy launched OnStar LTE in 2014.
In only two years, Chevrolet drivers have used more than 3 million gigabytes of data overall – and if that sounds like a lot, it is. That’s the equivalent of streaming more than 100 million hours of music.
Chevy says as customers increase their use of the technology, it’s able to make it more affordable.
Here’s a closer look at the new pricing, which is 50 percent less for most plans with the all-new 4 GB monthly plan representing four times the amount of data available previously for $20 per month.
|Data Plan||Old Pricing||New Pricing|
|1 GB / month||$20||$10|
|4 GB / month||N/A||$20|
|10 GB / month||$80||$40|
|20 GB / 12 months||$150 for 10 GB / 12 mos.||$150|
