Pricing not yet announced for the service which is provided by AT&T
GM has announced that it has teamed up with AT&T to
give customers internet access
inside most of its 2015 model year vehicles (courtesy of an LTE modem). The partnership will allow AT&T customers add their vehicle as a device on a new or existing AT&T data plan.
The plan will also allow owners of LTE modem equipped vehicles to purchase access on an “as needed” basis, similar to what AT&T already allows with tablets such as

GM VP of Global Connected Consumer said during the Barclays Global Automotive Conference, "So we’re trying to make this as flexible as possible and as easy as possible to get the customer used to buying data connections inside of their vehicles."
GM and AT&T haven't announced pricing for the service, which is expected to be available in mid-2014. It should also be noted that the integrated AT&T service won't replace GM's OnStar service.

Onstar's always been a cellular service and offered the ability to be added to your contract as a voice line for years. In two years time upgrading to an LTE modem will cost peanuts (and be needed for future proofing as 2/3g networks begin to be shut down anyway); allow GM to charge more for the "premium" feature while allowing ATT to get more money from a larger upsell than when onstar was voice only.
