General Motors announced this week during 2013 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona plans of implementing 4G LTE support.
The 4G LTE roll-out will begin with the 2014 model year and will spawn over most Chevrolet, Cadillac, GMC and Buick models in the United States and Canada by 2015. At first, GM will offer this service with AT&T, but more carriers are expected in the future. Global markets will also get this service later on.
While current Wi-Fi hot spots are limited to 3G, General Motors mentions 4G LTE will be ten times quicker and will grant full Internet access, with support for streaming videos and live traffic updates and navigation. It should be easier to use as the driver won't need a paired smartphone. GM and AT&T also announced plans on releasing new applications.
More details are available in the attached press release.
