Verizon, the nation’s largest carrier announces four new unlimited plans on the verge of expanding 5G network across the nation. The new plans will replace the current operating old plans including Go Unlimited, Above Unlimited, and Beyond Unlimited plans. The new plans will be available from Monday as the Start Unlimited, Play More Unlimited, Do More Unlimited and Get More Unlimited plans.
The new plans also come in with a $5 discount as compared to their equivalent older plans. The new plans will be available as $70 for Start, $80 for Play More & Do More and $90 for Get More. The older plans were sold for $75, $85 and $95 respectively.
For people using multi-lines for an account would add up a good amount as a discount. A customer with four lines in an account of Go Unlimited will have to pay $140 (Tax exclusive) instead of $160 (Tax exclusive) if updated to Start Unlimited plan with using Autopay.
The policy of too many plans could sometime create confusion among the customers as they have to closely keep an eye on each plan to get the best plan according to their needs. With the old plans, the customers were able to choose their lines with either one Go and 2 Above and vice versa.
Angie Klein, Vice President Marketing of Verizon says that they are waiving the fee for 5G if the customers opt for Play More, Do More and Get More and besides this, a $5 fee will be charged. The company also says that the customers who buy the 5G device can access 5G at no extra cost. Secondly, there is an additional $5 discount for those customers opting for 5 or more lines.
Despite all the discounts the T-Mobile and Sprint are still the cheapest for entry-level plans in the market with the difference of at least $10 as compared to that of Verizon.
The company is giving 4G LTE data, six months Apple Music, unlimited text and talk in the US, Canada and Mexico although there might be a slowdown in the data speed when you are in a populated place like a stadium.
The Do More plan comes with a 25GB of 4G LTE data and subscription to Apple Music while the Play More is more entertainment-based so comes with 50GB of 4G LTE data however the streaming is limited to 480p and only six month Apple Music. Both the plans come with 500 GB Cloud storage in Verizon Cloud Service.
