Verizon To Offer Unlimited Wireless Data Plan After Long Resisting

Verizon To Offer Unlimited Wireless Data Plan After Long Resisting

Just in time for Valentine's Day, Verizon will be offering a new plan that gives customers unlimited data on smartphones and tablets.

Verizon's unlimited data plan applies for both new and existing customers. T-Mobile too is offering unlimited data plans on four lines for $160 a month, with the provision to add up to ten lines each costing $20. Customers can also add connected devices, like the new Wear24, for only $10 per month. First T-Mobile came with its unlimited data along with streaming video and all, the catch was that it cost you more if you wanted HD video streaming with T-Mobile.

Customers opting for the plan will have to agree to AutoPay or paper-free billing.

"We've built our network so we can manage all the activity customers undertake", he said in a statement to Fortune on Sunday.

Verizon, the largest United States wireless communications service provider, will launch an unlimited data plan dubbed as "Verizon Unlimited".

While it's technically correct that you're getting unlimited data with this plan - Verizon won't charge you extra no matter how much data you use, after all - calling it "unlimited" isn't correct in spirit.

If you still haven't jumped on the T-Moible bandwagon however, the carrier will be introducing a fresh deal that new customers will be able to take advantage of. To cap it off, Verizon offers unlimited "HD" streaming of video on their plan, although video streams will likely be capped at 720p.

Included in the unlimited plan is a hotspot tethering of up to 10GB at LTE speeds, and calls and texts to Canada and Mexico.

Verizon's entry into the unlimited data offering is a bit late compared to its rivals. An equivalent uncapped family plan charges $45 per line for 4 people, or $180 monthly. This means after you've reached the 22GB threshold, you could see reduced data speeds. AT&T's unlimited plan also comes with a 22 GB data usage threshold and other things in fine print. The plan will be $80 a month for an individual line.

If you are interested in signing up, the Verizon Unlimited plan will be available online from Monday, February 13. The carrier is yet to confirm prices for two, three, or more than four lines.
