Verizon returns to Unlimited

Verizon Homepage

Verizon just rolled out exciting news for their customers that have some surprised. Verizon has recently announced the return of the unlimited data package. According to CNN, Verizon customers are now able to get unlimited data, text and talk features for eighty dollars a month.

One feature that Verizon is adding to this plan for now is the 10 GB of mobile hotspot usage. Customers are able to also call and text to friends in family in our neighboring countries, Mexico and Canada. However, the one aspect that everyone seems the most excited for is the unlimited HD video streaming.

This is quite the step up for cell phone carriers, especially after many customers criticized T-Mobile for lowering video quality for a few of its unlimited data customers, reported CNN. However, not everything is perfect. Verizon has stated that while it promises quick LTE speeds, customers using more then 22 GB of data during any one billing cycle might be left behind. Verizon stated, according to CNN, that it “may prioritize usage behind other customers in the event of network congestion”. Which, for the most part, has become a relatively standard practice across companies that offer unlimited data packages and plans.

Verizon first did away with the unlimited data plan back in 2011 but last summer attempted to “test the waters” on reintroducing the plan. Last summer, Verizon rolled out a new plan called “Safety Mode”, which basically provides customers with unlimited data, but once the user goes over a certain limit, their data goes incredibly slow.

AT&T recently also rid customers of overage fees but has yet to introduce unlimited data plans for just wireless customers. They do offer unlimited data plans, but the customer must be a AT&T wireless customers as well as either DirecTV or U-Verse TV users as well to qualify, reported CNN.

It will be interesting to see for sure how the return of the unlimited data plans fare with the public. My thought, I am sure that most will go crazy for it and we will have to keep an eye open for other networks to follow in Verizon’s footsteps.
