3G Turndown, Audi Connect WiFi Changes in Charlotte, NC

What to Know about the 3G Turndown and Your Audi Vehicle - Beginning on Feb. 22, 2022, AT&T will begin turning down 3G. Simply put, with many of our services on Audi connect operating on both 3G and 4G, there just isn't enough capacity to operate a fifth generation. This improves the bandwidth giving you an even more dependable performance from the 5G network. Once this turndown begins, you will no longer have access to services or hardware that operate on the 3G technology. At this time, current Audi Connect packages will no longer be available for purchase or renewal. Most customers will be able to receive the required software updates and hardware upgrades at no cost, and all customers with an impacted vehicle are eligible for a $500 new-vehicle incentive. All 2017 vehicles and several of those 2018-19 Audi vehicles are eligible to receive the motion for Audi connect hardware at no cost with four years of prepaid service. 

Introducing Motion for Audi Connect

Beginning as soon as the 3G turndown commences on Feb. 22, Motion for Audi connect will be available for all 2017 vehicles and owners within the new vehicle or CPO warranty and the required upgrades are available at no cost. An all-new 4G telematics device and mobile app will let you drive with peace of mind with added features and services, like Automatic Crash Notification, manual SOS Emergency Call, Stolen  Vehicle Locator, and Roadside Assistance.
