Several of the major carriers have been criticized for throttling data on their unlimited plans. So when AT&T recently announced a new program for Airstream travel trailer owners, offering a fixed price annual plan for these specific roving users, and claiming “unlimited with no throttling” we took notice.
Our last blog, AI & TEM, Yes It’s a Thing, described the increase of wireless connections to a multitude of devices and appliances. With this announcement, AT&T is taking AI to Airstream by building LTE services into select models of 2019 Airstream RVs, so customers can choose between a $25 per month plan that offers 5 GB of LTE-powered WiFi or a year of unlimited WiFi data for $360. Clearly, they’re going after this segment of the market directly.
Most new cars are now wired for hotspots, but not wired directly for a specific carrier. We expect to see more of this type of partnering and targeting from other carriers as the battle for vehicle hotspots continues.
