Over the last two years, all four major wireless carriers have introduced unlimited data plans that have proved unsurprisingly popular. But despite the name, none of the plans are actually unlimited: there’s a “deprioritization threshold” that’s essentially a soft cap on data, limits on the quality of the video you can stream, and conditions on stuff like hotspot data. Just like the metered data plans of old, there are better and worse “unlimited” plans, and Verizon just launched the best and most expensive of all.
Called “Above Unlimited,” the plan costs a teeth-clenching $95 per month (plus taxes and fees) for the first line. In return, you get a deprioritization threshold of 75GB per month, 20GB of hotspot data, and five “TravelPasses” that get you unlimited data in most overseas countries for one day.
