Audi and AT&T have announced data plans for North America's first 4G LTE connected vehicle, the 2015 Audi A3 sedan. This partnership was first announced in January at CES 2014, but both Audi and AT&T remained tight lipped in regards to the pricing of data plans for the vehicle.
For owners of the 2015 Audi A3, AT&T will offer a choice of two plans: a six month plan with 5GB of data (833MB / month) for $99 or the 30 month plan with 30GB of data (1GB / month) for $499. AT&T touts the 30GB / 30 months plan as a better value as it equates to a three cent difference in plans but with the addition of 167MB per month. AT&T also allows customers the option to add their vehicle to their Mobile Share data plans as a connected device. This data plan is meant to work with Audi's Connect service, which will be included free for the first six months. Audi Connect unleashes the power of your car infotainment system by including the power Google Maps, Google Voice, and social media access with Twitter and Facebook. While currently 4G LTE is a Audi A3 exclusive, Audi hopes to roll out this technology to its other lines as new models or refreshes release.
