    I’ve seen some people in the US have started to be charged for Premium Connectivity and there was mention of it in the latest software with Backgammon.

    However I can’t see anything in my account when I log in.

    Has anyone got a notice about it yet?

    It doesn't appear to be in Australia yet. It would be interesting to see if they bring it here for those stuck on SR+ in the future.

    I can't imagine it won't. We have it on our SR+ for a year...to take it away without a paid alternative would just be mean ;)

    From the FAQ’s on the US site, we’d all be having to pay for it at some point. I guess we can just enjoy the free ride for a bit longer :)

    I understood it was a 12 month trial for SR+ and before the drop dead date we'll hear about pricing for AU. Since Australian 3's are only 1/3 of the way there I'm not expecting pricing to be confirmed for 6 months yet.

    I don’t think that’ll be the case based on the US FAQ


    Will there be a trial period for Premium Connectivity?Tesla Account.

    All deliveries of Model 3 Standard Range and Standard Range Plus on or before December 31, 2019 will receive a 30-day complimentary Premium Connectivity trial

    Here’s the page I’m talking about if you’re interested. I need to use a VPN to avoid the auto redirects on my phone Connectivity

    you can add ?redirect=no to the URL to stop almost all redirects, then you don’t need a VPN. Connectivity

    I've looked at the documentation for our SR+ and can't find any reference to the Premium Connectivity trial. I do know I initially thought we didn't have it (used to tether the car to my phone) but was set right at a visit to the service centre after a flat tyre.

    At that time I thought a year was mentioned, but that might not be right. What I can confirm is that service centre visit was October 15, well over 30 days ago and we still have it.

    I've had Premium Connectivity in my sr+ for months and I take it as part of my sr+ with no trail period.

    it was 1 year for LR (premium interior) cars and nothing more SR/SR+, but they gave (at least) 30 days when V10 was released.

    There was NO 30 day trail when V10 was released for SR+ in Aust or NZ. SR is only sold in America & maybe Canada.
