    AT&T nabbed its first 5G connected car deal, announcing an expanded collaboration with GM that will see 5G-equipped vehicles from the automaker starting with select models by 2024.

    Over the next 10 years, GM and AT&T said they expect to have 5G in “millions of GM vehicles coming off the assembly line.”

    Before the 5G-enabled vehicles hit the roads, part of the collaboration will focus on ensuring backbone network connectivity that can support GM’s plans for next generation connected cars, and eventually autonomous vehicles.

    “The Internet wasn’t meant to be metered in bits and bytes, so it’s insane that wireless companies are still making you buy it this way. The rate plan is dead — it’s a fossil from a time when wireless was metered by every call or text.” John Legere 1/5/2017

    Despite looking, I haven’t been able to confirm whether these 5G cars will support bands n77, n260, or n261.

    Yeah they’re being pretty vague:

    GM isn’t yet disclosing all of the 5G bands that vehicles will support, “but the band support we will have will be diverse and is fully aligned with AT&T’s spectrum strategy,”

    Absolutely infuriating when vehicle manufacturers don’t future-proof cellular hardware to the fullest possible extent, given that people regularly hold onto the same car for literally decades. LTE is probably going to be shut down circa 2040, but you can count on people still using cars from 2021 when that happens.

    Maybe the old connected car Mobley plan will start getting 5G (when in a 5G hotspot).
