Verizon launches unlimited data plan with 10GB of LTE tethering, offers free iPhone 7/Plus

Verizon is no longer the only¬†major US carrier¬†without an unlimited data plan. As announced yesterday, the carrier’s newly launched Unlimited plan¬†gives you unlimited 4G data, texts and minutes on a single smartphone or tablet in exchange for $80 per month, or $45 per month for four lines ($180 total).

Those¬†prices entail¬†paper-free billing and AutoPay and exclude taxes. It’s unclear if Verizon’s access fees of $20 per month per smartphone and $10 per month per tablet apply to the new plan.

Like with other carriers, you don’t really get truly unlimited data: consume¬†more than 22 gigabytes of 4G LTE data per line in any given month and the system begins prioritizing usage behind other customers in the event of network congestion. For a limited time only, the big red carrier is offering a free iPhone 7/Plus, Google Pixel or another¬†flagship smartphone to¬†those who’d switch to the new plan.
