Verizon's Unlimited Data Plan

According to CNN.com/tech, Verizon will be bringing back an unlimited data plan.

Starting Monday, February 13, 2017, Verizon customers can get unlimited data, talk, and text for $80. Many companies such as AT&T and Sprint have been steadily reviving the plan.

The plan includes up to 10 GB of mobile hotspot usage, as well as calling and texting to Mexico and Canada. The company promises “fast LTE,” but those using a lot of data may suffer. The company stated that after a customer uses 22 GB of data, it “may prioritize usage behind other customers in the event of network congestion.”

Verizon first eliminated its version of an unlimited plan back in 2011. Last summer they introduced a new “Safety Mode” plan. This gave customers access to unlimited data, but they were subjected to really slow data after they went over their allowed data usage.

Having unlimited data has its pros and cons. Customers will get unlimited data without a limit on how much they use, but the data will be slow. Many competitors are trying to compete to have the fastest data to attract customers who are looking for “unlimited data” plans.
