Several automakers are getting set to offer 4G LTE connectivity inside cars. The connectivity will be used to offer drivers connected services and to allow passengers access to entertainment content while driving. One thing that we didn't really know about the 4G LTE hotspot service was exactly how much it would cost.
GM has now unveiled that exact pricing and availability for the 4G hotspot service. The first car to get the service will be the 2015 Malibu. After that, the service will rollout to four Buicks, 15 Chevy models (including the new Corvette), 7 Cadillac, and six GMCs.
The service will support up to seven devices. Buyers will be able to sample the service with data connectivity offered free for the first 3GB or three months. After that, users will be able to add 200MB of data for $5 per month or 1GB of data for $15 per month. Buyers will also have a $30 3GB option and a $50 5GB option.
