FREEP Buyers of new General Motors vehicles will soon have the option of connecting laptops, smartphones and tablets to wireless hotspots for an extra monthly charge.
The automaker revealed the pricing structure today for high-speed AT&T Internet packages in more than 30 of its 2015 model-year vehicles in the U.S. OnStar subscribers can get AT&T 4G LTE packages for as little as $5 per month, GM said.
Someone who doesn’t subscribe to GM’s OnStar service, which provides safety and security services, can pay anywhere from $10 per month for 200 megabytes of data to $50 per month for five gigabytes of data.
