In 2016 Chevrolet owners used more than 4 million gigabytes of data, increasing data usage by 200% from 2015. To put into perspective 4 million gigabytes is equivalent to streaming more than 17.5 million hours of videos. Chevrolet owners have come to appreciate the ability to stream videos, send emails, or play games online using OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot.
Among Chevrolet owners, Tahoe and Suburban owners used three time more data than a year ago. Good news for Knoxville drivers: due to the spike in data usage Chevrolet will be offering a groundbreaking plan enabled by AT&T across its entire vehicle lineup!
