Verizon introduces a new $30 Unlimited Plus plan with 30GB of LTE and 5G access
Verizon on Tuesday introduced a new Unlimited Plus plan for those who need more data on the go for connected devices like tablets. The plan offers 30GB of LTE, double that of the standard Unlimited plan, and access to Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband (mmWave) and eventually their 5G Nationwide (sub-6GHz) network for just $30 per month.
Verizon is angling its new wireless plan as something that will benefit those who are learning to adjust to remote work and education. “Rather than fighting for Wi-Fi, the extra data helps manage increased needs for remote learning or work with a secure and personal connection,” Verizon said in an announcement.
Verizon’s Unlimited device plans are offered in addition to the carrier’s regular wireless plans and are a great option if you need a data connection for devices like tablets, mobile hotspots, laptops and more. With people traveling far less often due to the COVID-19 pandemic, however, an additional data plan may be unnecessary until life returns to normal.
Nevertheless, if you have a poor home Internet connection or you simply need a backup in case your connection goes down, Verizon’s new Unlimited Plus plan offers a lot for just $30. And it features 5G connectivity access, which Verizon has aggressively been expanding this year.
In addition to the announcement of Unlimited Plus, Verizon said they’re simplifying their smartwatch plans. You now pay $10 per month to connect your smartwatch to the network, whether it’s through a standalone plan or with NumberShare. Of course, this offer applies to all new smartwatches on the market, including Apple’s new Watch Series 6 and Watch SE.
