“A 4G LTE hotspot that’s built into a car’s architecture will provide a more consistent and powerful Wi-Fi connection than a smartphone.”
These new systems will also come with a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot, so
passengers can get share the data connection with smartphones, laptops

The LTE speeds will be included in a variety of 2015 Chevrolet models including the Corvette, Impala, Malibu, and Volt. It will be rolled out to other models such as Equinox, Silverado, Silverado HD, Spark and Spark EV soon.
