Late last month, Buick announced that four out of five 2015 Buick models would be offered with the high-speed data of OnStar 4G LTE, which is faster than the 3G currently offered for several of Buick’s competitors. With the OnStar 4G LTE, vehicle occupants will be able to surf the web, play games, stream music, send emails, and more on up to seven devices at a time.
“Today’s Buick lineup is full of technologies that help make our owners safer and more secure than they would be without them,” explained Tony DiSalle, vice president of Buick Marketing. “With the introduction of high-speed OnStar 4G LTE, Buick owners will be better connected as well.”
In addition to browsing the Internet, checking important emails, updating Facebook, and playing games, users will be able to stream Internet radio apps through Buick AppShop, which will be featured with every vehicle that has OnStar 4G LTE. Initial apps will include Cityseeker, Eventseeker, Glympse, iHeartRadio, Kaliki, NPR, Priceline.com, Slacker Radio, and the Weather Channel. A Vehicle Health app is expected later this year.
“We are focused on constantly improving the OnStar service so that the system continues to remain a trusted value-add for GM customers,” said Terry Inch, chief operating officer, OnStar. “4G LTE will enable the most powerful OnStar connection ever.”
