    Chevy has a deal with I think ATT for mobile WIFI also. My wife just leased a 2017 Traverse and I remember reading about the subscription. Again I think it was ATT which is funny since I have ATT and she is on Verizon.

    Yeah a few years ago att got the whole OnStar deal with GM starting with certain year models. I think Verizon had it for 10+ years before that

    Seems like there were some glitches at first but everyone I know seems to be happy with their att connected car now

    Purchased a 2015 Silverado last year and have had it on my mobile share plan for an additional $10.00/month to month, no contract. It's much better and more convenient than using my mobile hotspot or iPhone. So much that i'm cancelling the hotspot next month when its contract expires. I don't use on star at all, waste of money.

    So with that you can drop the on star and use att connected car without problems?

    My Silverado has OnStar which I just renewed, but it is also attached separately to my AT&T account and for $40 a month it attaches to my unlimited data plan. It's awesome for long trips and when outdoors in remote areas because it does have decent reach away from the vehicle.

    I bought a new Dodge Charger RT and my in car wifi uses sprint. And 3G at that. Needless to say, I don't pay for it.

    You can tether to the car on its unlimited data plan? So it's all you can eat for all devices? I like the sound of that.

    What devices exactly does one need to set up the ZTE Mobley as a home internet connection? I know the plug in device sold on Amazon & ebay, but what from there? Do you connect to your router? In other words, how does a set up work with the ZTE Mobley?

    Yea its nice. I think like 10 devices can connect. The great part is because it's tied into the OnStar antenna, the reception is a LOT better than on any of our devices. It seriously can get signal where all the other devices are searching for signal. Speed's are actually pretty decent. I am not sure if it supports 3xCA, but it suffices.

    Me too. And the Sprint 3G connection is terribly slow to launch on it.

    ! Does it not have a 4G modem, or are you in a 3G only area?
