The Big Red has brought back its unlimited high speed data option, both to existing subscribers and those still looking to sign up at Verizon Wireless. Verizon Unlimited is here (and hopefully, here to stay), and it comes with unlimited domestic voice calls, text messaging, and 4G LTE data. Priced at $80 a month for a single line of service, it also features unlimited voice calls to Canada and Mexico, a maximum of 500 megabytes per day of data roaming free of charge, and 10 gigabytes a month of free LTE mobile hotspot use, including unlimited 3G tethering.
What makes Verizon Unlimited different from unlimited data plans offered by rival networks such as T-Mobile and Sprint is that it also offers all HD video streaming. Moreover, it appears that the biggest wireless carrier in the United States is not restricting anything with regards to music or gaming, which should mean that its subscribers can definitely enjoy the optimum streaming experience.
As mentioned earlier, an individual line of service costs $80 a month, but for those looking to avail of an option for families or groups, they can actually get a four line unlimited plan at $180 a month (or equivalent to $45 for each line). Even though the pricing is applied to smartphones and tablet devices, subscribers are also free to get an additional connected wearable device for $5 more every month.
For those in need of international wireless coverage, they can do well to take full advantage of Verizon Wireless’ TravelPass, which can be availed of by paying an extra $10 a day and already brings up to 500 megabytes of fast data use on a daily basis, as well as unlimited voice calls and text messaging, plus unlimited 2G roaming. The TravelPass add-on provides coverage in over 100 countries, and customers will only pay for the days they are actually using their handset when going abroad.
Like what AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint are doing with their respective unlimited plans, Verizon Wireless will similarly implement a data prioritization policy for users who consume the most data. Specifically, those who use up over 22 gigabytes of LTE data every month on one line of service will likely have their data speeds throttled, especially during times of network congestion or when connecting in peak traffic locations. When the next billing cycle starts, the de-prioritization should reset.
It does seem a little bit unusual that Verizon Wireless is positioning Verizon Unlimited as an introductory plan, even though existing subscribers can freely avail of the new option. It is also inevitable that some interested parties will be wanting to know if international text messaging will also be unlimited. And what about customers looking to get two or three lines of service, or those getting over four lines? Verizon should have plenty of time to address these in the weeks to come.
