    I know Tesla limited free LTE to a year starting 7/1/18. I am getting an inventory car next week which was made 4/18. Am I still getting free LTE forever or limited to a year? I asked my OA and they had no idea.

    I'd have to say yes, you will. But only Tesla can confirm.

    Tesla is likely to regret that decision. The major carriers are expected to start dropping 3G service within the next year to free up bandwidth for LTE, so without LTE service, Tesla cars likely won't be able to phone home at all.

    Yep, you'll have a free one. It's like a supercharging, you get it with a car, but when you sell it you will lose it.
    No worries :).

    You get free LTE forever, but not for all features. What is not free after one year is “premium LTE” which includes satellite maps and music streaming through slacker (and maybe OTA updates?). Normal maps & traffic will always be free. For music, you will always be able to stream from your phone via bluetooth.
