OnStar will offer data plans in select GM vehicles
Beginning next month, OnStar will make available 4G LTE data plans in the 2015 Chevrolet Malibu, followed by 30 other Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, and Cadillac vehicles by the end of the year. New car buyers will receive a trial period that runs three months or three gigabytes, whichever comes first. After that, plans start as little as $5 per month ($10 for non-OnStar subscribers) for 200MB of data, which OnStar says is enough to stream more than 6.5 hours of music, surf the web for 13 hours, or send more than 10,000 emails without attachments.
Working in Information Technology (IT) isn't especially glamorous to begin with, at least not outside of geek circles where the humor in Saturday Night Live's Nick Burns skits are completely lost, but at least you could count on steady employment. Even during the recession there's been a spattering of growth in IT spending, and if you happen to be an unemployed IT guy or gal living in the midwest (or willing to relocate), General Motors (GM) may soon have a job for you.
A market research firm says that you and 7,899,999 other drivers will have an active subscription to OnStar, the automotive telematics communications system installed in General Motors vehicles, by the end of 2017. For the sake of comparison, OnStar claimed 5.1 million subscribers in 2010.
