Unlimited data on the Verizon network has arrived. Beginning Today, Verizon is offering an introductory plan that gives you unlimited data on your smartphone and tablet on the Verizon 4G LTE (Long Term Evolution) according to the Verizon Press Release. With Verizon Unlimited, you also get HD video streaming, Mobile Hotspot, calling and texting to Mexico and Canada and up to 500 MB/day of 4G LTE roaming in Mexico and Canada - included.
Ronan Dunne, president of Verizon’s wireless division said “We also fundamentally want you to have more choice. We’re not limiting you to a single plan. If you don’t need unlimited data, we still have 5 GB, S, M, and L Verizon plans that are perfect for you”.
Verizon Unlimited pricing is at the top of the competition for what is generally considered the best network in the United States. The importance of that to you depends on where you live and how much you travel.
Unlimited plan pricing is:
$80 for unlimited data, talk and text on your smartphone with paper-free billing and AutoPay.
- $45 per line for four lines with unlimited data, talk and text on your smartphones and tablets with paper-free billing and AutoPay.
Mark Rogowsky at Forbes provides good insight into the comparisons of the various plans available in the US. He compares these plans noting that unlimited is really “mostly unlimited” in that starting at 22 GB per month with Verizon and AT&T they will slow down your connection during periods of network congestion. Sprint and T-Mobile also have limits where they begin to limit data speed but at 23 GB and 28 GB respectively.
With Verizon joining in with the Mostly Unlimited Data offerings we now have choices to make about what is best for our needs.
Even with Verizon’s extensive network we find many places where the 4G LTE is weak for consistent voice connections and especially fast data connections. That is where we use the weBoost cell phone amplifiers we offer at www.cellkicker.com. If you feel you need better signal in your home, office or vehicle feel free to contact us for help in selecting the amplifier to meet your needs.
