Chevrolet Vehicle Owners Upping Data Usage, Carmaker Says

Chevrolet vehicle owners used 4.2 million gigabytes of data in 2016, 200 percent more than in 2015.

Chevrolet Tahoes and Suburbans have become internet hot spots for owners, using three-and-a-half times more data than a year ago, the carmaker reported.

Vehicle owners are able to stream movies, send emails, and play online games.

The OnStar 4G LTE-enabled SUVs are made at the General Motors Assembly Plant in Arlington at a rate of one vehicle per minute, 24 hours a day six days a week.

Dallas Innovates recently got a tour of the GM plant, which is being expanded to meet increased demand.

Looking across the entire Chevrolet line, vehicle owners used 4.2 million gigabytes of data in 2016 — 200 percent more than in 2015.

The 4G LTE connection comes standard on all new Chevrolet models, but there is a monthly subscription charge.
