If there’s anything we’ve learned as we round out this decade of vast automotive change, it’s that the car will continue to become more and more connected. That’s apparent in Chevrolet’s most recent findings surrounding OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi.
According to the brand, owners consumed a whopping 4,220 terabytes of data through 2016, marking a 200 percent increase from 2015. Specifically, Chevrolet saw huge gains in data usage from Tahoe and Suburban owners.
Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburbans owners ate through 713,699 gigabytes of data in 2016, good for 3 million hours of video streaming, or 25 million hours of music streaming or even 1.5 billion photos posted to various social media sites.
“As a strategic plan to grow retail sales, Chevrolet has continually invested in new safety, convenience and connected technologies across our trucks, utilities and cars,” said Alan Batey, president of GM North America and global head of Chevrolet. “We are attracting new buyers to Chevrolet by offering technologies like OnStar 4G LTE not available on competitive models. New owners are in turn more likely to become repeat Chevrolet customers as these features become an integral part of their day-to-day lives.”
4G LTE Wi-Fi was introduced across Chevrolet’s entire lineup of vehicles for 2015 and comes as standard equipment on every single model with the OnStar Basic Plan.
