It has been announced by GM as to how much would it set back for turning one of the vehicle that is 4G LTE equipped into a mobile hot spot for Wi-Fi only kit. Now streaming NetFlix on the back seat would no more be an issue.
Cadillac, GMC, Buick and Chevrolet would be the 1st brands who would be seen marketing 4G LTE Connectivity on a large scale. While vehicles by General Motors might be the 1st to offer this connectivity on a broad scale, they aren’t the first who have added such a technology in the United States. Few weeks back, 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot connection was offered by Audi in its A3 Sedan.
However, the rollout of GM would be a wider one and would start with 2015 Chevrolet Malibu, which would soon be released. Then it would be followed by 4 Buicks, 15 Chevys, 7 Caddies and 6 Jimmies. However, all this would happen by the end of the year. The Wi-Fi hotspot would support around 7 devices including tablets, smartphones, game consoles and laptops. One tried and tested marketing model would be offered by GM for getting the customers use the service. Millions of customers would get an opportunity for exploring this technology without having to pay extra for data plan for 3 GB or 3 months.
After this test run, charges would be applicable for streaming. 200MB of data can be added for a price of $5 per month and 1GB of data can be added for $15 per month. By paying $30, 3GB of data can be added and by paying $50, 5GB can be used.
