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 Apple’s iPad.

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.

As a blanket statement, I would have to disagree. You didn't even bother to back this up. Why shouldn't they be?
