AT&T Wins LTE Deal with Volvo Cars North America

AT&T was awarded a multi-year contract to provide connectivity to future Volvo vehicles in the U.S. and Canada.  AT&T is scheduled to power Volvo's US 2015 model year connected car solution with Sensus Connect, an embedded infotainment service. Volvo customers in the U.S. and Canada will also have access to Volvo On Call, a service allowing remote access to car functions and an emergency crash notification service.  Volvo plans to enable cars with AT&T on-board for sale this summer.

"We expect Volvo customers will be delighted to have these services on board, and we're committed to working with Volvo Cars to give their customers a unique and valuable service," said Chris Penrose, senior vice president, Emerging Devices, AT&T Mobility. "Our Single SIM will make it easy for Volvo customers to have high speed wireless connectivity in the U.S. and Canada."

In March, AT&T confirmed that most 2015 Buick models will come with OnStar 4G LTE and a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot, allowing passengers to browse the Internet, download movies, play games or send email on up to seven devices at once.  The connectivity will be provided by AT&T.

Buick announced today at the DENT Conference that the 2015 LaCrosse, Regal, Verano and Encore would come standard with OnStar 4G LTE hardware, with data packages available for an additional charge. Available in the U.S. and Canada, OnStar 4G LTE hardware will be in every Buick model by the 2016 model year.
