Volkswagen starts 4G data services for car owners with Verizon, T-Mobile US

Monday 30 August 2021 | 11:47 CET | News
Volkswagen said its Car-Net system will let people get 4G from either Verizon or T-Mobile US from 1 September. The option, called Carrier of Choice, lets VW owners in the US access mobile data subscription plans on the car manufacturer's website or via its mobile app. People add an account to their existing mobile provider (if it is Verizon or T-Mobile) and pair it with their existing Volkswagen Car-Net subscription. People not with either Verizon or T-Mobile can get unlimited 4G data for USD 20 per month.
