Audi's Connect Infotainment system utilizes the T-Mobile network for its data needs. The companies have released a joint statement introducing new data plans that bring the price as low as $15 per month. The data plan would have previously set you back $30 per month on a month-to-month basis.
The new plans include unlimited data for $30 per month, a yearly contract, a two-year contract, or a 30 month contract. These will set you back a total of $324, $600, or $450, respectively. Cars are often long-term purchases, so getting a two-year contract probably isn't a problem for most.
One thing that I would like to see is the ability to sell the contract with the car, if for some reason you need to sell the car right away. It's not clear whether or not Audi and T-Mobile currently offer this.
Customers want to have the wireless experience they want when they want it - at home, at work, or in their car. Through our partnership with Audi, customers can now access award-winning in-vehicle service and virtually unlimited data access for as little as $15 per month.
