Tesla and AT&T have announced a partnership that will see AT&T providing high-speed wireless service to various Tesla vehicles. The deal gives Tesla a new in-car partner for data connectivity and helped AT&T to expand beyond its traditional services.
AT&T will provide two-way data connection for Tesla services such as roadside assistance and stolen vehicle location. The connectivity will also allow Internet access, navigation, and entertainment content on a 17-inch touchscreen in the dash of the Tesla vehicle.
There is no indication at this time of if their data charges associated with AT&T connectivity. The technology can also allow Wi-Fi hotspot use within the vehicle.
