Chevrolet has announced that it is accelerating the roll out of OnStar 4G LTE in 2014. By this summer, GM says that Chevy cars will have OnStar LTE connectivity in the vehicle running through the AT&T network. The announcement was made at CES 2014 today in Las Vegas.

The first Chevy models to get the LTE modem will be the 2015 Corvette, Impala, Malibu, and volt. Other models will get the LTE modem later this year. Chevy says that the majority of vehicles will have the service built in at launch.

The vehicles will have an integrated WiFi hotspot allowing the connection of personal electronic devices to the network. Current AT&T subscribers will be able to add the vehicle to their shred data plans and stand-alone options will be available.
