Verizon launches a third "unlimited" plan

Verizon is launching a new service plan today called Above Unlimited, which is the third plan [ilimitado] that the carrier currently offers. As the presence of three "unlimited" plans could indicate, none of these plans actually offers unlimited data, but Above Unlimited at least offers the plus non-unlimited data of the three plans: it is only subject to acceleration after using 75 GB of data per month, or 20 GB of use as a hot spot. After these limits, your plan is subject to acceleration "in times of congestion" until its adjudication is restored.

The new plan starts at $ 95 per month for a single line. That's $ 10 more than the Beyond Unlimited plan, which offers 22GB of data and 15GB of hot spot use before acceleration, and $ 20 more than Go Unlimited, which does not seem to have a limit but speeds up the entire 480p video quality and limits to spot the speed at 600 Kbps. Clearly, Verizon is concerned about streamers (at least those that do not use Go90).


I'm not clear how often or how substantially Verizon speeds up Unlimited subscribers that go beyond their limit, but the fact that Verizon Offer this third level suggests that you should be doing enough to cause problems for people. It is good that Verizon at least offers a larger data option for those who need it, although it could be clearer about what "unlimited" really means.

The operator announces another useful update today: for families using unlimited plans, it will now allow different phones to have different versions of the plan, instead of requiring each line to use exactly the same service option. That could allow parents, for example, to put their children in the cheapest plan, while opting for a more expensive one for them. Those changes and the new Above Unlimited plan will be available on June 18.
