GM just announced that the 2015 LaCrosse, Regal, Verano and Encore will become the first Buick vehicles to come standard with OnStar 4G LTE technology.
Models will also come equipped with the Buick AppShop, through which drivers can download apps and stream Internet radio playlists.
In 2016, all Buick models will come with OnStar standard, so we have that to look forward to as well.
We are focused on constantly improving the OnStar service so that the system continues to remain a trusted value-add for GM customers, said Terry Inch, chief operating officer, OnStar. 4G LTE will enable the most powerful OnStar connection ever.
The OnStar 4G LTE should be one of the fastest in-car applications yet. Passengers will be able to access high-speed, wireless internet through a Wi-Fi hotspot that can accommodate up to seven devices, including smartphones, laptops and tablets.
