It is no secret that data plans have become one of the most common commodities in today's market. Products like these have now been incorporated in automobiles and Chevrolet is now offering an unlimited data plan for its loyal customers.
The Unlimited Data Plan
Following the 4 million gigabytes of data used in during the previous year, Chevrolet owners in the U.S. market will not be able to have access to unlimited data per month. According to Automotive World, owners will only have to pay $20 per month to for the prepaid data plan. It was also mentioned that starting March 3, 2017, this plan will be made available across all the models of Chevrolet.
An Upcoming Competition
According to report from The Verge, consumers can expect for Chevrolet's rivals in the auto industry to also roll out something similar. This is because consumers are actually making use of more data in their cars for all sorts of things rather than the in-car Wifi system that the automakers have incorporated. Aside from the built-on applications of the standard infotainment systems of modern cars, owners usually have access a lot of other things that also requires data. Given this fact, the only question now is which of Chevrolet's rivals will be the next to roll out an unlimited data subscription plan for their lineups?
The Consumers' Gain
Consumers' stand to gain a lot thanks to Chevrolet's generous offer of unlimited data subscription plan. "We have contractors bidding jobs in their Silverados, families streaming movies in their Suburbans and Malibus and everyone tapping into the cloud for music," said Alan Batey, president of GM North America and global head of Chevrolet. Batey also added that with the most affordable unlimited 4G LTE data plan in the auto industry along with the availability of Android Auto and Apple CarPlay plus the connected services such as OnStar AtYourService, the automaker's momentum will only grow from here.
