The biggest wireless carrier in the United States has revealed its plans of debuting five brand new prepaid data plans, which are targeted to mobile users who are looking to acquire quick and temporary data access while on the go. The new prepaid data plans from Verizon Wireless can be used by customers for their tablet devices, mobile hotspots, or any other connected handset, and they offer both 3G and 4G LTE cellular service. The Big Red is also also offering data on weekly, monthly, and bi-monthly (twice a month) plans, which should come in handy for specific mobile users who like to have some Plan B ready if ever they find themselves in Wi-Fi free locations.
The new prepaid data only plans from Verizon Wireless are summarized as follows:
500 megabytes plan -- priced at $15, with a one week expiry
1 gigabyte plan -- priced at $20, with a one month expiry
2 gigabytes plan -- priced at $35, with a two month expiry
5 gigabytes plan -- priced at $60, with a two month expiry
10 gigabytes plan -- priced at $100, with a two month expiry
These plans should be useful for some customers, especially those who want to have access to data when on the road. But still, some may notice that the new plans offered by Verizon Wireless are kind of more expensive than the standard postpaid data service. Having said that, those who avail of these plans may want to refrain from using the data on a daily basis.
For those who are searching for a more long term data solution for their smartphones or tablet devices, they can still check out Verizon Wireless’ postpaid data only plans. The Big Red’s postpaid pricing starts at $20 a month for 2 gigabytes of data, and up to 100 gigabytes of data for $710 a month. The wireless carrier also offers something in between -- 10 gigabytes of data for $60 a month. Compared to the prepaid pricing of $100 for 10 gigabytes of data, you can save $40 if you go for Verizon’s 10 gigabyte postpaid data plan offering.
However, subscribers who do sign up for a postpaid data only plan will be required to pay an extra charge for line access, for every mobile device connected to their data. For tablet devices, they can be added for $10 a month; mobile hotspots can be added for $20 each; while other connected mobile devices (such as wearable devices like smartwatches, for instance), can be added with a $5 a month charge.
