Verizon Announces New Unlimited Data Plan

February 13, 2017

Launching tomorrow starting at $80 for a single line

Unlimited data on the Verizon network has arrived. Beginning Monday, Verizon is offering an introductory plan that gives you unlimited data on your smartphone and tablet on the best 4G LTE network in the country. 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.

“We’ve built our network so we can manage all the activity customers undertake. Everything we’ve done is to provide the best experience on the best network – and we’ve built it for the future, not just for today,” said Ronan Dunne, president of Verizon’s wireless division. “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.”

Our 4G LTE network already covers more than 2.4 million square miles and consistently delivers fast speeds in more places than any other network. Ever since we were first to launch 4G LTE broadly across the country, we’ve been making it even better, faster, stronger, every single day:

  • We’ve layered in our spectrum assets to provide the breadth and depth of coverage that serves you best.
  • We launched LTE Advanced  that provides you with 50% faster peak speeds in more than 471 cities nationwide
  • We can adjust to your demand in real-time with the latest antenna technology coupled with state of the art software platforms, which also let us deploy new services faster than ever before
  • Our innovative small cell deployment is the largest in the nation and it is foundational to the best experience.
  • We have deep fiber connected through advanced architectures.

With Verizon Unlimited, you’ll get great coverage with us in cities large and small, in rural locations, and everywhere in between. All of these enhancements help us provide you with the best experience in wireless.

Verizon Unlimited is a great value:

  • $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.

On all Verizon Unlimited plans you get our fast LTE speeds. To ensure a quality experience for all customers, after 22 GB of data usage on a line during any billing cycle we may prioritize usage behind other customers in the event of network congestion. While we don’t expect to do that very often, network management is a crucial tool that benefits all Verizon customers. If you’re on Verizon Unlimited, you’ll have the same coverage and reliability as everybody else.You can add a connected smart watch, GizmoPal, or other connected device for just $5 each month. Get TravelPass for $10 per day (500 MB/day limit; 2G speeds after that) while overseas. Mobile Hotspot with 10 GB of 4G LTE data is included at no charge (after 10 GB you’ll get 3G data speeds).

    Auto pay as a requirement, having trouble collecting from your stellar customers I take it. But then the rest of us have to sit next to them in a restaurant while they blab their mindless comments over a phone loud enough for the whole place to hear. I suspect most of them can’t manage a stable bank account anyway so good luck.

    There’s a catch to all of this. I don’t trust them.

      No one is forcing you to own a cell phone.

        Nope, you’re not required to have one, but you are required to pay so others can. The Universal Service Fee that’s on your bill is a cross-subsidy that funds Lifeline phones for welfare recipients. Congressionally mandated.
        You’re not required to have internet service either, but Congress mandates it’s availability.
        You’re not required to drop 5 bucks on a lightbulb, but Congress has mandated that manufacture of incandescents above a certain wattage end.
        Doing what you can to save the planet.

    So…..

    $320 per month for a typical “family” 4-line account?? Not including taxes, fees, and whatever other hidden charges!

    Sorry, but I’ll stick to my plan instead of shelling out almost $400 a month for “unlimited” cell service!

      4 x 45 = 180$ Where are you getting $320 from?

      I can’t tell if the problem is your southern MD math or your southern MD reading.

      “$45 per line for four lines ” = $180 plus taxes and fees.

    “To ensure a quality experience for all customers, after 22 GB of data usage on a line during any billing cycle we may prioritize usage behind other customers in the event of network congestion.”

    There’s the catch. 22 GB of data isn’t enough these days.’Unlimited, my a*s*s.

    Check out AT and T. Cheaper, and just as good coverage. The Verizon monopoly has to end.
