I both called SOA and AT&T about this a while ago. My main question was if you could just use the wifi when you wanted it. I am only interested in using it for long road trips, not on a daily basis. So I asked if it is something you can sort of turn on and off as needed. The quick answer was NO. I told them I didn't mind paying for the whole month to turn in on for a weeks worth of use, but they still said NO.Is the service month-to-month, or is there a contract that requires you to keep the service for a year or so?
Thanks for the link. Reading over the terms, it is a 30-day prepaid "unlimited" (22GB @ LTE speeds then throttled afterwards) plan for $20, and auto-renews unless you cancel before the 30 days is up. In a way, you pay for the plan for 30 days, and then cancel 10 days before the 30 day cycle is up, and the service terminates after 30 days. You then can use the "Existing Customer" link and start up again when needed.AT&T has a page for the Subaru starlink wifi. Take what you can from it. Seems like a month to month contract with auto-renewal at the end of 30 days.
I couldn't find a list of plans but if you found one for $10 for 1GB per month, I would recommend spending the extra $10 and buy the $20 for unlimited GB per month.I may have misunderstood what I was reading but it looks like they may have a prepaid plan for $10 a month? Have to go back and look at in again when I have more time....
Would 1 GB even be enough to be useful? Maybe .....I don’t know much about data usage.....or this tech stuff......
I was thinking of doing the same, just hotspotting from my phone and being done with it, but realistically, It's just me and the Wife and our son (15 months old), and if we need data for a movie, we'd hotspot it from our phones.Just researching this. Trying to see why I would want this. I have Verizon for my phone which has better coverage anyway. I rarely go over 22GB so that's not a big deal. You can get these hot spots the size of a hockey puck that do the same thing. Now we have these modems in work vehicles but that's work. And I do not have 7 people in the car with ipads. And if I did I would just have them tether to my phone.
My free trial ran out so I purchased more data. The choice was $20 for customers with an account and $25 prepaid. Did there use to be a $20 prepaid option?
