Having announced that Chevrolet drivers and passengers have consumed over 3 million gigabytes of data using the OnStar 4G LTE-based Wi-Fi hotspot in the first two years of its availability, the Bowtie brand also announced another interesting stat: over 60 percent of Suburban owners and passengers use their OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot. Tahoe and Traverse hotspot usage is not far behind.
These stats are not surprising given that the the three vehicles in question are typically used for families, and the Wi-Fi hotspot is capable of handling connections from up to seven devices simultaneously.
“Wireless connectivity has proven to be a beneficial technology for many Chevrolet customers, from contractors who use their Silverado as a mobile office to families using their Suburban on a summer road trip,” said Sandor Piszar, Chevrolet truck marketing director. “As our customers increase their usage of the technology, we are able to make it more affordable for them.”
