Verizon already offers some of the best phone plans in the United States, especially if you need unlimited data and other premium features. If saving money is your first priority, you should check out Verizon’s new prepaid plans.
Verizon has completely overhauled its prepaid plans, making them more competitive against other budget carriers. The cheapest option now costs $35 per month and includes 15GB of high-speed data and hotspot access – available hotspot data comes from the same 15GB pool as the phone. There’s also a $50/month “Unlimited” plan with 5GB of dedicated hotspot data. Finally, the $60/month “Unlimited Plus” option has unlimited phone data, 25GB of hotspot data, “Global Choice” (which usually costs $10 on its own and has some international access), and support for ” Verizon’s fastest ultra. -Broadband network “5G (including C-Band).
A common problem with prepaid plans is that they are often deprecated at the network level over premium postpaid plans. For example, if you’re in a crowded sports arena with thousands of phones in a small area, Verizon cell towers will prioritize connections from postpaid customers over prepaid subscribers. That’s not a problem in all areas, but the pricier Unlimited Plus fixes that: the first 50GB is “premium network access” with no deprioritization or artificial throttling.
Overall, the new plans are a better deal than Verizon’s old prepaid deals, which only provided 5GB of data for $35/month, and Unlimited Plus was a whopping $70. However, finding the best plan deal Prepaid could also mean cross-purchasing with plans available from Total by Verizon (formerly Total Wireless), which also use the Verizon network. For example, Total’s basic unlimited plan is $10 cheaper than Verizon Prepaid with double the hotspot data. There’s also Visible, another Verizon subsidiary that offers unlimited plans for as little as $30 a month, and plenty of other prepaid providers that use T-Mobile or AT&T’s nationwide network.
