NEW YORK – The best prepaid on the best network just got better with the introduction of two new prepaid plans packed with more data. Starting Nov. 13, you can choose from new 5 GB and 10 GB plans.
“People who choose Verizon’s prepaid service already enjoy the best value in the industry,” said Rob Miller, vice president of consumer pricing for Verizon. “The introduction of these new plans now gives you even more data to enjoy all that the next gen network has to offer.”
Unlimited data on the Verizon network has arrived. Beginning Monday, Verizon is offering an introductory plan that gives you unlimited data on your smartphone and tablet on the best 4G LTE network in the country. With Verizon Unlimited, you also get HD video streaming, Mobile Hotspot, calling and texting to Mexico and Canada and up to 500 MB/day of 4G LTE roaming in Mexico and Canada - included.
“We’ve built our network so we can manage all the activity customers undertake. Everything we’ve done is to provide the best experience on the best network – and we’ve built it for the future, not just for today,” said Ronan Dunne, president of Verizon’s wireless division. “We also fundamentally want you to have more choice. We’re not limiting you to a single plan. If you don’t need unlimited data, we still have 5 GB, S, M, and L Verizon plans that are perfect for you.”

Verizon recently announced that for the first time in more than five years, it would begin offering unlimited data plans for its wireless customers.
February 13, 2017 — After ditching unlimited data offerings five years ago, Verizon Wireless is once again offering customers an unlimited data, talk, and text plan, beginning Monday.
Verizon said on Sunday it will launch an unlimited LTE data plan, called Verizon Unlimited , on Monday. The plan starts at $80 a month for one line or $45 a line for a group of four on smartphones or tablets. Both new and existing subscribers can sign up.
The move marks the first time in more than five years that Verizon, the nation''''s largest carrier in terms of total subscribers, will have an unlimited offering. The carrier recently started forcing heavy users who had stayed on old unlimited plans to move to new offerings.
T-Mobile under CEO John Legere doesn’t like to cede the spotlight to a rival carrier. True to form, T-Mobile struck back at Verizon’s new unlimited plan late Monday as the “un-carrier” announced new features to bring its unlimited plan in line with Verizon’s.
The new features to T-Mobile’s unlimited plan, dubbed T-Mobile One, include a monthly allowance of 10GB for mobile hotspot over LTE. After hitting the 10GB limit, T-Mobile drops mobile hotspot users down to 3G speeds. T-Mobile also added HD video streaming quality. Previously, video streams on T-Mobile One were limited to 480p resolution—standard definition.
With Verizon returning to the fray this week, all four of the major mobile carriers in the US now advertise unlimited offerings.
None of these plans allows you to use an endless amount of LTE data across the board with no penalties. Instead, each carrier warns that your speeds may be slowed if you go over a certain amount of data in a month and live in an area of congestion. How this "prioritization" is determined isn't totally clear. Each plan also limits what you can do with that data when it comes to things like mobile hotspots, international usage, and the like.
