Ever go on a trip and find yourself using more data than usual? Or even, using up your entire data package? Chevrolet has a solution for that. When you test drive most 2015 models at Classic Chevrolet, you’ll find that many models will have a Wi-Fi hot spot built in. Now, when you or your kids get bored with the countryside and decide to stream videos or movies, you won’t blow through your data package, which can get pretty expensive depending on your plan.

Even setting up your phone to work as a hot spot is often a hassle. And when you do, you end up with strained eyes from constantly watching something on such a small screen. Instead, thanks to Chevrolet and AT&T, models such as the Chevy Malibu will offer 4G LTE wireless access in most of its vehicles. The other GM vehicles – Buick, Cadillac and GMC – will have the 4G LTE wireless access. A total of 30 different models from GM will get this feature.

The Wi-Fi access will be provided via GM’s Onstar subsidiary. The hot spot is embedded into the high-powered antenna that Onstar uses and will come on any time the vehicle is on, thus giving you a great connection when you are in or near your vehicle. And, you won’t waste your phone’s battery while you’re on the way to your destination.

The new service allows you to connect up to seven devices. Additionally, this gives you improved access to Onstar services, including remote vehicle access and vehicle diagnostics. For the first three months, the 4G LTE service is free – or until you blow through 3 gigs of data, whichever comes first. If you have AT&T, you can add another device for $10 per month after the free trial. If you’re not an AT&T customer you can buy plans for as little as $5 per month for 200 megabytes (or $10 if you’re not already subscribed to Onstar). Five gigabytes of data will run you only $50 – and that’s about five hours of streaming video. Five gigabytes will let you send or receive up to 2,000 emails and attachments, plus gives you 200 web-surfing hours.

Additional plans include buying a one-day purchase of 250 megabytes for $5 or 10 gigabytes per year for $150 (this option is $200 for those who do not have Onstar).

Stop by Classic Chevy today to test drive your next new vehicle – and be sure to ask your salesperson if the model – or models – you are interested in will have 4G LTE capability.
