Verizon Wireless will on Monday offer unlimited data plans to its customers for the first time since 2011. Verizon's new offer costs $80 per month for a single line with unlimited talk, text, and data; mobile hotspot; calling/texting to Mexico and Canada; and 500 MB of 4G LTE data per day when roaming in Mexico and Canada. The total monthly cost for two lines (before taxes and fees) is $120, the cost for three lines is $160, and the cost for four lines is $180. Lines five through 10 will cost an additional $20 each. Paperless billing and auto-pay are required to qualify for these prices. Verizon says domestic mobile hotspot usage is limited to 10 GB per month; customers who exceed that limit during a single billing period will see their speeds dropped to 3G for the remainder of the month. Verizon says unlimited data customers who consume more than 22 GB of data during any single billing period may see throttled speeds when the network is congested. "While we don’t expect to do that very often, network management is a crucial tool that benefits all Verizon customers," said Verizon Wireless. Connected devices such as smartwatches and the GizmoPal can be aded for $5 per month. For roaming countries other than Mexico and Canada, Verizon still offers its TravelPass data plan, which costs $10 per day for 500 MB in most countries. Verizon will continue to offer its 5 GB, small, medium, and large service plans. Verizon's new unlimited plan will be available from Feb. 13.

Game changer.

At last.
Lets see what the fine print says. For example is the cost for a limited time only and they will jack up the prices. If its really $100 + 20 per line that would be the best multi-line plan in the industry. I would be surprised if they actually ...

Service still sucks

At least for me the service was terrible and the call quality was like being on a cell phone 10 years ago.
Really? I have lived in 11 different states (IL, MO, GA, TN, FL, ID, WA, MT, NM, UT & WY) & found Verizon to be the best or maybe second best in every one of them. Also for traveling too, my family has been to all 48 lower U.S. States & 2 Canadian P...

How does it compare ...

... to the grandfathered Unlimited?

I'm currently still using the grandfathered Unlimited... this new plan would be less expensive, but would I be losing anything if I switched???
i had the grandfathered unlimited plan but i was using a **** ton of data and they sent me a letter saying that i had till the end of that month to change plans of have my service canceled

This is AMAZING! Sinks T-Mobile/MetroPCS/AT&T & Cricket.......

The nationwide coverage is so dramatically better with Verizon but I especially like the 4 line for $180 deal. My family has Cricket unlimited now for 4 lines and am $220/month with no tethering or roaming allowed (look at Cricket Coverage in WY or NV for example!). With AT&T I'd have to have DirecTV to get unlimited and then I get ZERO hotspot on the 4 lines vs 40GB of LTE Hotspot on Verizon (10GB each x 4 lines). T-Mobile optimizes (throttles) any video & offers ZERO LTE hotspot as well as way inferior network coverage & is always roaming on AT&T with a terrible 50MB of roaming (LOL) & MetroPCS has only native T-Mobile data coverage so that's pathetic. I don't know now how Sprint or Boost could practically GIVE service away their netwo...
