Gen­er­al Motors will switch from Ver­i­zon to AT&T for their wire­less ser­vices, fol­low­ing an agree­ment with OnStar LLC, a GM sub­sidiary.

Find out what this agree­ment will entail.

AT&T, the leader in emerg­ing devices and telem­at­ics ser­vices, today announced an agree­ment with OnStar, LLC, a sub­sidiary of Gen­er­al Motors Cor­po­ra­tion (GM), to wire­less­ly deliv­er an enhanced suite of safe­ty, secu­ri­ty, diag­nos­tic and info­tain­ment ser­vices to most Chevro­let, Buick, GMC and Cadil­lac vehi­cles, begin­ning in 2014 in the Unit­ed States and Cana­da.

The mul­ti-year agree­ment calls for AT&T to enable mil­lions of GM cars, trucks and crossovers with 4G LTE mobile Inter­net access, pro­vid­ing the lat­est wire­less tech­nol­o­gy to pow­er GM’s safe­ty and secu­ri­ty ser­vices offered by OnStar, as well as a new suite of info­tain­ment ser­vices like stream­ing audio, web access, appli­ca­tions, and even video for back­seat pas­sen­gers.  AT&T will also enable GM’s in-vehi­cle Wi-Fi hotspots and voice call­ing ser­vices. These enhance­ments build on OnStar’s exist­ing port­fo­lio of con­nect­ed ser­vices, first intro­duced in GM vehi­cles in 1996.
