Verizon’s Secret New Unlimited Plan Is So Cheap That You Need An Invite, But There’s A Catch
Verizon has garnered a reputation of being the most expensive wireless service, but that is about to change. Sort of. Verizon is starting up a secondary wireless company focused on a no-contract service that offers cheaper plans and unlimited usage… but there’s a catch, because there’s always a catch.
Verizon Wireless now has a new startup company that offers an unlimited plan for only $40, all data, calls, and texts are included. Verizon’s current unlimited plan starts at $85, so this new offering is a massive discount. As the old adage goes, you get what you pay for. While the data is unlimited, it is also capped at only 5 Mbps. That’s not terrific. That means you’ll typically be watching video at a resolution of 480p. For comparison, the Big Four wireless carriers (Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint) have average network speeds of nearly 23 Mbps.
On the plus side, if you utilize WiFi for video, then it really won’t matter, plus you’re saving $45 a month and still utilizing Verizon’s award-winning 4G LTE network. However, if the network is busy, postpaid will get priority over pre-paid customers.
