AT&T and Volvo have teamed up to give wireless internet access and other entertainment capabilities in 2015 Volvos.
According to a press release, AT&T has been tapped to operate 2015 modeled Volvo's with Sensus Connect.
The service allows users to go on the internet, play music from their own selection, the radio, or a podcast, and access directions about where to go according to information on Volvo's website.
"We expect Volvo customers will be delighted to have these services on board, and we're committed to working with Volvo Cars to give their customers a unique and valuable service," Chris Penrose, senior vice president, Emerging Devices at AT&T Mobility said in a statement. "Our Single SIM will make it easy for Volvo customers to have high speed wireless connectivity in the U.S. and Canada."
Drivers in the United States and Canada will also have access to Volvo's On Call service, an app that allows users to lock their car, locate where their car is, look at information on their dashboard from their phone, and control their car's heat from their smartphone according to information from the company's website.
The app also keeps track of the trips a driver takes, and pre-programs the Volvo vehicle for the place the driver needs to go to via the car's Sensus Navigation option.
"With the introduction of our new single worldwide SIM solution and the ability to provision over the air, we're giving our device makers the convenience of coverage around the globe, while also enabling enhanced global services like local telecom," Chris Penrose, senior vice president, emerging devices at AT&T said at the time of the Single SIM's release.
"We're seeing a trend towards integrating SIM cards at an earlier point in the value chain, when mobile devices are produced. By utilizing AirOn technology in its single SIM offering, AT&T will be able to supply customers with the service flexibility they demand," Klaus Vedder, Gieseck senior vice president at Giesecke and Devrient said in the statement.
