Does AT&T Support the Wifi for the Dodge Ram?
Yes, At&t does support wifi for the Dodge Ram. Right now, At&t has a deal where you can get unlimited data in your Dodge Ram, via UConnect, for only $20.00 per month (starting).
At&t also had written down a list of fine print details that we believe you should read and check into if you are planning on signing up with them. Only because a lot of carriers only advertise what they want you to see, but a lot of people seem to ignore the fine print. Do not be one of those people. To make things easier on you, we found the small print details and will list them below:
Always pay careful attention to the road and do not drive distracted.

In Conclusion | What You Should Know
Most people know that their Ram trucks have wifi but they do not know how it works. It is quite simple and we understand why it can be confusing with all the technological jargon. So before we leave you, we thought we would explain the process to you. According to Stony Plain’s online website, here is how they would describe the wifi hotspot:
A 4G Wi-Fi hotspot is a simple thing. It works just like the Wi-Fi router does in your home or office. Except instead of being plugged into the wall, it wirelessly connects to the 4G cellular network.
This way, you can stay connected even on the go. With one of these enabled, you can connect mobile devices to the internet including laptops, tablets, phones, and more.
The billing for the 4G Wi-Fi hotspot works much like a cellular plan, which makes sense because it utilizes cellular networks, in this case, AT&T. Most new Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and RAM models equipped with a 4G Wi-Fi hotspot also includes a 3-month 1GB trial so you can test it out.
We hope that you found this article helpful and that you better understand how wifi works in your Dodge Ram trucks.
