The new Plus plan offers 50 GB of full-speed data for $40/month. mmWave 5G is included, and customers can stream 4K video when using the mmWave 5G network. The Pro plan steps up to 100 GB of full-speed data for $60/month, while the Premium plan offers 150 GB for $80. The Essential and Plus plans are only offered as an add-on to an existing Verizon account, while the Pro and Premium plans are available as a stand-alone plan for an extra $30/month.
