Verizon today announced the launch of a new unlimited data plan for its prepaid customers, which offers unlimited data, talk, and text across the United States for $80.

The plan includes unlimited text messages to more than 200 countries, along with unlimited talk in Mexico and Canada. Video streaming, is, however, limited to 480p, and no tethering is included. Verizon also says it "may prioritize your data behind other customers during times/places of network congestion."

"In just months, Verizon has transformed its prepaid offerings to make it easier and more affordable for customers to get access to the best network at a great value, no matter how much data they need," said Tami Erwin, executive vice president of operations for Verizon. "This plan is all about giving our prepaid customers more choice. With data plans from as little as 2 GB to unlimited data, we've got a plan that fits your needs."

Verizon's prepaid plans include no long-term contract and no credit check. Verizon also offers 2GB, 5GB, and 10GB data plans for unlimited customers, along with a $30 basic phone plan with unlimited talk and text.

The introduction of the new unlimited prepaid data plan comes just over two months after Verizon unveiled its postpaid unlimited data plan to compete with unlimited data offerings from AT&T and T-Mobile. Verizon's unlimited plan offers unlimited talk, text, LTE data, and 10GB of tethering data for $80 per month.

Some of you need to stop with the fake news type spin. Verizon does offer unlimited data. Just because said data may not be LTE 100% of the time does not negate the fact that the cellular data is unlimited.

While technically true, that's not what it would imply to most people.

That's like saying here is an all you can eat buffet, but you can only eat with a fork for the first five bites; after that, you can only eat with a toothpick. So, you would realistically consume significantly less in the same time given the restriction than you would otherwise.

It's not the same experience. It's a company trying to tout offering something great but with a screw you caveat not allowing completely unfettered access to the thing they claim to have.

Verizon - where unlimited isn't unlimited, 1GB Fiber isn't 1GB and you as a customer aren't treated like a customer....
