People Used 4,220,684 Gigabytes of Data in Chevrolets Last Year

Chevy owners across the U.S gobbled up an astonishing 4,220,684 gigabytes (or 4,220 terabytes) of data during 2016, a 200 percent increase from 2015. 

“As a strategic plan to grow retail sales, Chevrolet has continually invested in new safety, convenience and connected technologies across our trucks, utilities and cars,” said Alan Batey, president of GM North America and global head of Chevrolet. “We are attracting new buyers to Chevrolet by offering technologies like OnStar 4G LTE not available on competitive models. New owners are in turn more likely to become repeat Chevrolet customers as these features become an integral part of their day-to-day lives.”

OnStar 4G LTE connectivity was introduced across the Chevrolet lineup during the 2015 model year, now 4G LTE capability is standard kit on all new Chevrolet models.

Tahoe and Suburban owners in particular saw their usage increase by 260-percent in 2016 to 713,669 gigabytes of data used in 2016 which would be equivalent to:

  • 3 million hours of streaming standard video
  • 25 million hours of streaming music
  • 1.8 billion song, game or app downloads
  • 1.5 billion photos posted to social media
