Verizon Makes Unlimited Plans Pricier, More Complicated

Verizon today revealed revamped unlimited plans that aren't nearly as attractive as last month's plans. The standard Unlimited plan now costs $85/month instead of $80/month, and has been renamed "Beyond Unlimited". It offers unlimited calls, texts, and full-speed 4G LTE data up to 22 GB, after which data speed may be limited on busy towers. The plan includes HD video, but HD video on phones is now limited to 720p resolution, even for customers with older plans that did not previously limit video. (Tablets and laptops are allowed video at 1080p.) The plan also includes 15 GB of mobile hotspot data, up from 10 GB, and that change is retroactive to customers with the old plan. The company also unveiled a cheaper "Go Unlimited" plan for $75/month, which technically offers 4G LTE data, but may throttle data speeds at any time the network is busy, not just after 22 GB as with the more expensive plan. The cheaper plan also limits video to SD resolution and throttles mobile hotspot data to just 600 kbps. All of these new prices require paperless billing and auto-pay, or an extra $5/month fee applies.
