    Free data for four years!

    Shareholder's letter just released states that data will be free for four years. Good news!


    "To further enhance the driver experience, new Model S customers will now receive free data connectivity and
    Internet radio for four years. As an added benefit to our existing Model S customers, the free four year period
    starts on January 1, 2014. To be fair to all, in rare cases a customer may be charged for extreme data use."

    Fantastic news from Tesla. A real relief.

    I wonder if AT&T basically said, look, you're not interesting enough (read: not enough subscribers) for us to do something interesting w/ data plans a la Apple iPhone, and Tesla said, okay, we'll wait until 2018 when there are hundreds of thousands of Teslas roaming the earth.

    By then, Tesla can just attach cell towers to each of its thousand-plus SuperChargers and Mini-Chargers, and form its own cellular data company.
