Weirdly, with their latest announcement, Verizon appears to finally listen to their customers. The company on Sunday announced that starting tomorrow, it will finally offer unlimited data plans. The carrier also stated that their unlimited data plans are better than competitors’ (Sprint, T-Mobile) data plans in a sense that they have less limitations when it comes to customers using their unlimited data.
Unlike Sprint’s unlimited data, which only streams videos at 480p, Verizon unlimited data plans will allow users to stream videos in 720p HD. Other features of the plans include 10GB of 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot, calling and texting to Mexico and Canada and up to 500 MB/day of 4G LTE roaming in Mexico and Canada.
Verizon will offer this plan for $80 on a single line with paper-free billing and AutoPay. As a family plan, the plan will cost $45 per line for four lines, totaling $180/month. Both unlimited plans include unlimited data, talk and text.
As we all already know, none of the carriers offer true unlimited data by definition. They all have some limitations and there’s no exception here. After 22 GB of data usage, Verizon will throttle your speeds if the tower you’re using is congested. The company says that they don’t expect this to happen to you very often.
