Verizon Reshuffles Prepaid Plans, Adds Value

Verizon Prepaid has revamped its prepaid plans to offer more for less, with restructured payment discounts. The cheapest plan, offering 5 GB of data for as little as $25 (after discounts), has been eliminated. The base rate for the remaining plans is now $5/month less, but the maximum payment discount is now $10 instead of $15, resulting in the same monthly rate overall. Previously, customers could stack a $5/month auto-pay discount plus up to $10 in "loyalty discounts" over time ($5 after three months; $10 after nine months.) Now, the two discounts are mutually exclusive: either a $10 auto-pay discount or up to $10 in loyalty discounts. This means customers can access the full discounted rate immediately if using auto-pay, instead of waiting ten months for the lowest rate. The 15 GB plan remains otherwise unchanged, available for $35/month with auto-pay. The basic Unlimited plan now includes 5 GB of hotspot data, for $50/month with auto-pay. The high-end Unlimited Plus sees the most changes, adding "50 GB of premium network access, 25 GB of premium mobile hotspot service, and one free Global Choice country per month (a $10 value)." Unlimited Plus is still $60/month after discounts. As before, Unlimited Plus includes faster 5G Ultra Wideband, and both Unlimited plans include talk, text and data to and from Mexico and Canada.
