AT&T has teamed with Airstream to bring 4G LTE connectivity to the iconic Airstream Silver Bullet. It’s an industry first and AT&T serves as the exclusive wireless provider. The upgrade launches in 2019 model Airstream Classic travel trailers. AT&T data plans start at $25 per month for 5 gigabytes of monthly data. Or for $360 get 1 year of unlimited data.
With the connected Airstream Classic, campers can stay in touch with family and friends, or take their office on the road. Just connect a smartphone or tablet to the Airstream’s Wi-Fi hotspot.
“The Internet of Things is transforming the way we work and play every day,” said Chris Penrose, President, IoT Solutions, AT&T. “We’re making it easier to stay connected and bring the conveniences of home – even while you’re out camping with friends or family.”
Smart Control allows campers to remotely monitor and control indoor temperature, propane tanks, battery power, water levels, lighting, awnings, ventilation and more through the mobile app; connect to 10 smartphones, tablets and smart TVs to the Airstream’s Wi-Fi; or use the GPS locator to guide back to the Airstream from an outdoor adventure.
“Digital technology has improved almost every aspect of our lives,” said Airstream President and CEO Bob Wheeler. “Shouldn’t it make camping better, too? We think so. That’s why we’re leading the way with our new Smart Control Technology and connectivity solution, starting with our Airstream Classic travel trailers.”
