It’s important to note that VW knows how to build great vehicles; they haven’t suddenly changed direction and jumped into the telecommunications industry. Our manufacturing partner is working with two of the biggest names in the wireless business, Verizon and T-Mobile. Volkswagen has worked out a deal with both providers that VW vehicle owners will be able to access unlimited data through each company’s respective networks for around $20 per month.
