GM is launching its in-car 4g LTE wireless internet next month, and the American automaker has announced pricing starting from $5 a month.
Each car equipped with the setup will come with a trial period of three months or three gigabytes. After that, customers will be able to choose between four monthly plans or two one time purchase plans. Customers who subscribe to OnStar will also be given a break in the form of cheaper internet plans.
For the cheapest option, customers will pay $5 a month for 200 MB. Moving up, there will be 1 GB, 3 GB and 5GB a month plans, which price out at $15, $30 and $50 respectively. For those who don’t subscribe to OnStar, those prices climb to $10 for 200 MB and $20 for 1 GB. Both the 3 and 5 GB plans remain the same.

For those who don’t want to pay the bill monthly, GM will sell you a one day package which gets 250 MB for $5, or a yearly package that includes 10 GB for $150 ($200 for non-OnStar subscribers). GM’s internet service will be provided by AT&T, and will be made available to existing AT&T users for an additional $10 a month when a car is added onto a mobile share plan.
The technology will launch on the 2015 Chevy Malibu, but GM says more than 30 vehicles from across its brand portfolio will add in-car internet before the end of the year.
This service allows up to seven devices to pair to a vehicle’s wireless hotspot.
