One of the most popular names when it comes to the world of telecom carriers, Verizon holds a major market share in the United States. This telecom giant is known for its wide coverage and great service. However, for the last five years, Verizon was the only name among the big-4 to not have unlimited data plans. Competitors AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile all offered it. However today, Verizon unlimited data plans too were announced.
Verizon Unlimited Data Plans were announce via YouTube, as well as via a press release on their website. The VP of Verizon himself took stage and announced why this was the right time to start off with unlimited plans, and how it’s not just about having unlimited data, but it’s about ‘Verizon Unlimited’. The company has finally realized that in the modern day and age, data has taken over voice, and eventually voice calling too will become data calling. With the Verizon Unlimited Data Plans, much is being offered. Let us take a detailed look –
The Verizon Unlimited data plans begin at $80 for a single device, and for a group plan of four devices, it is charged in at $45 per device. It has been priced in at $20 less than the AT&T plans, but is more expensive than the Sprint and T-Mobile plans. At this moment, pricing details on 2,3 and 4+ devices is not mentioned. The Verizon Unlimited Data plans cap the limit at 22GB following which speeds might be throttled in areas where networks are congested.
Users can also tether data, however, beyond 10GB of data, the speeds will be throttled to 3G speeds. Even these speeds are good enough for those who are travelling or are in areas with low internet connectivity. This is indeed a good move from Verizon, and while this was long overdue, the Verizon Unlimited Data Plans are finally here.
