Verizon brings back its unlimited data plan
Make Verizon great again. But not as what you think.
Verizon took it to a step with a new data plan that gives customers unlimited data, talk, and text for $80 on a single line. It also comes with free phones for switchers/traders. What the.
BUT, they do mean alternative-unlimited like every other carrier does and you might get your speed throttled at 22GB.
Verizon will be offering these plans starting February 13 and more details could be found here.
On all Verizon Unlimited plans you get our fast LTE speeds. To ensure a quality experience for all customers, after 22 GB of data usage on a line during any billing cycle we may prioritize usage behind other customers in the event of network congestion. While we don’t expect to do that very often, network management is a crucial tool that benefits all Verizon customers.
You can also add a connected device for an extra $5 per month, and the international TravelPass (500 MB/day limit; 2G speeds after that) is also available for $10 per day. Last but not least, a mobile hotspot is included and you will be able to tether up to 10GB per month before you’re throttled way down to 3G speeds, still much better than 2G, at least.
For the trade-in option, here is what you can get and what you can dump for.
Your choice of a hot new iPhone 7, 7 Plus, Google Pixel, Moto Z Droid, Z Force Droid, Samsung Galaxy S7, S7 Edge or LG V20.
And the eligible devices you’re able to trade on Verizon include the iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 6s, 6s Plus, 7, 7 Plus, Samsung Galaxy S6, S6 Edge+, S7, S7 Edge, Note 5, LG G5, V20 and HTC 10.
You could also trade in a functional, mint-condition iPhone SE, Samsung Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy S5, LG G4, V10 or HTC One M9 for a discount to $5 a month on the same aforementioned high-end handhelds with device payment plans.
They call this an introductory plan, so we’re not sure how it applies to existing customers. We’ll see soon.
