Verizon has introduced two new prepaid data plans with 5GB for $50 per month and 10GB for $70 per month. Both plans include unlimited talk and text in the United States, Always-On Data, Carryover Data, Mobile Hotspot for 4G LTE tethering, and messaging to more than 200 countries at no additional cost.

Carryover Data allows Verizon customers to keep their unused data for an additional month. The feature automatically rolls your unused data for one month into the next. If you have 1GB of unused data remaining in November, for example, it would be added on top of your regular December data bucket.

Always-On Data provides unlimited data at up to 128 kbps speeds at no additional charge when a customer meets their monthly limit for high-speed data.

The 10GB plan also includes unlimited calling to Mexico and Canada.

The new tiers accompany Verizon's existing prepaid plans, including 6GB of data for $60 per month, 3GB of data for $45 per month, and Wi-Fi only for $30 per month.

Verizon's Prepaid Plans

  • Wi-Fi only: $30/month

  • 3GB: $45/month

  • New — 5GB: $50/month

  • 6GB: $60/month

  • New — 10GB: $70/month

All prices require signing up for automatic payments with Verizon.

Verizon's postpaid data plans, by comparison, include 2GB for $35/month, 4GB for $50/month, 8GB for $70/month, 16GB for $90/month, and 24GB for $110/month. Each plan includes unlimited talk and text in the United States.

Verizon customers can review and make changes to their account using the revamped My Verizon app, available as a free download on the App Store [Direct Link].

Wow, that's surprisingly not terrible. I'm expecting the other shoe to drop soon, but until then, good job Verizon!

EDIT: Note that Verizon postpaid also tack on a $20/phone monthly charge in addition to the cost of the data plan. Prepaid plans do not, which is what makes this a good deal.

This is actually really good. I currently pay $65 for unlimited with cricket (ATT). It's capped at 8gbps, but that's never been an issue.
actually it's only $50 now for 8gb($45 with autopay). They just changed it last month. That's what I have.

Edit
Sorry read that wrong. I mixed up the speed for data usage. Maybe I should have my coffee before getting in here.

Terabytes of unlimited* data.

*All media is compressed to look as ****** as possible.
I've found this criticism is only flung at T-Mobile by people who don't actually have T-Mobile. People who do tend to love it, because 480p looks pretty good on a ~5" phone screen and they'd rather watch the video than worry about data limits. Think I've run into like two customers who chose to deactivate Binge On as a T-Mobile rep.

Verizon's website is really outdated. Assuming they will update it to reflect these new plans but the existing ones aren't even reflected. Probably my biggest complaint with Verizon, and other providers, is how poorly their websites enable a customer to just price compare between plans.

Mobile prices in Denmark:

Unlimited Calling and Data: 17,7$ / month (www.plenti.dk ('http://www.plenti.dk'))
or
Unlimited Calling and 8 GB Data incl 3LikeHome = works in 40 countries incl USA: 22.3 $ / month (www.3.dk ('http://www.3.dk'))

Seems like you lack some mobile carrier competition in the US :)

We are back to this irrelevant nonsense again? Let's just ignore the size of the country to be covered or the population or almost anything else that would actually play a role in reality. How much is your gas (as in gasoline) by the way? Seems like you lack completion in various other goods and services in other parts of the world. :)
I just find it strange that my mobile subscription from a non-US country is a lot cheaper and that it can also be used in the USA, all of EU + more. And yes, the price is including our crazy 25% sales tax. So please don't be angry at me - direct it to the US mobile providers ;)

(and yes we pay like x2 for gasoline here, but that is all due to extra taxes.. and nothing else really)
