Verizon Communications Inc. has been named the first wireless communications service provider since September 2014. However, the company didn’t have it easy being at the top. It had gone through great length to keep its competitive edge. On the other hand, the rivals are gaining ground with each passing day in the wireless market. Based on disappointing financial reports, Verizon gave green light to several types of new offers. Thus, the company advertised a 5GB data capacity on a monthly basis in exchange for regular payments of $55. In response to this, Sprint came up with a similar service, but at the price of $50 per month. This gave Verizon no choice but to use the last card up its sleeve, the old unlimited data plan.
On Sunday, the wireless communications carrier made an official announcement that introduced its latest service, namely the unlimited data plan. Starting this Monday, the relaunch will enable Verizon customers to enjoy as much data, texts, and talk time they want for $80 per month. On the other hand, this price tag works for one line only. Clients that want the feature activated on several other lines at the same time will have to pay an additional fee of $45 for each line.
A Verizon spokesman declared that the new program would make no difference between their old and new customers. The unlimited data plan runs along with the other offers the wireless carrier has in store. For those consumers who believe that this is too expensive or they won’t take full advantage of this program, they can go for one of the other four plans. These are the 5 GB, S, M, or L programs that can fit other financial budgets and necessities.
The unlimited data plan has proved to be an enticing deal for consumers of the modern age who want to have unrestricted access to music and video streaming on their phones. However, this offer has become a rare service as the wireless carriers had to raise their prices making it an expensive luxury for most people. Moreover, some companies decided that taking this program down would be a better decision than struggling to continue it.
While Verizon boasts about its unlimited data plan, there is a catch. Once clients go over the 22 GB threshold, they will start encountering some issues. This is because from that point on, the company will prioritize the customers who haven’t consumed so much data yet.
