AT&T And Subaru To Bring 4G LTE To Select 2016 Model Year Vehicles


AT&T and Subaru of America, Inc. today announced an agreement in which Subaru will provide enhancements to its Subaru STARLINK in-vehicle connectivity system that deliver improved personal safety and security services to vehicle occupants via 4G LTE wireless connectivity.

STARLINK is the Subaru in-vehicle platform that provides hands-free connectivity, entertainment, and safety services to Subaru vehicle occupants. Subaru will offer owners STARLINK with a built-in AT&T 4G LTE communications module capable of offering features including stolen vehicle recovery, automatic collision notification, remote vehicle services such as lock/unlock via a smartphone device and monthly vehicle health reports.
