Verizon Launches Lower-Cost 'Welcome Unlimited' Plan

Verizon today announced the launch of a new 5G unlimited plan called "Welcome Unlimited," which the company says is its best price yet on unlimited talk, text, and 5G/LTE data.

The Welcome Unlimited plan is priced at $30 per line per month for four lines when Auto Pay is used, with Verizon also offering a $240 Verizon e-gift card per line when activating an already-owned LTE or 5G phone on the new plan. A single line is priced at $65 per month, and two lines are available for $55 per line per month.

Verizon is making the Welcome Unlimited plan available separately from its current Mix and Match Unlimited plans for families, and it cannot be combined with those plans. The Mix and Match Unlimited plans allow family members to have unlimited plans with different benefits and data options.

The Welcome Unlimited plan offers unlimited 5G/LTE data, but in times of congestion, Verizon says data may be temporarily slower. It does not include Mobile Hotspot functionality, which is what sets it apart from Verizon's other plans. The Welcome Unlimited plan is available as of today, with more information available on Verizon's website.

I would really like telecoms to stop using the word unlimited. Don't they throttle you if you use too much and limit the resolution of video you can watch and limit hotspot usage? Unlimited is a product name that doesn't translate to what the dictionary defines it as.

why is it so hard for carriers to offer a reasonable price for a single line?

I have Visible, Verizon's MVNO, and it's $25/m for one line, no autopay, for the same thing. And it also has a hotspot, albeit nerfed to an almost useless speed. Major carrier phone plans are antiquated, not everyone is a family of six and able to get your advertised "starting at $49/m!"

No hotspot functionality? That's a joke, really. A lot of people use hotspots in emergencies, IE, the cable internet is down, need to get online. They should at least throw in a few gigs of hotspot for these people.

This plan is basically useless to me because of that. I don't use hotspot often, but I do need it once in a while. Also, enabling hotspot costs carriers nothing; it is literally a toggle switch in the line provisioning.

Also, this becomes a lousy deal at 1 or 2 lines. These companies love to rave about how they're doing us favors with these great deals which then aren't when you read the fine print.

Technically it is unlimited since you can use as much data as you want, but the speeds are throttled (and this plan is the lowest priority). They aren't claiming unlimited high speed which is why I am sure they (along with the other carriers) aren't being sued for false advertising.
Exactly. The data is unlimited, the data speed can be a different story.
