In the next weeks, Verizon plans to enhance its 5G Ultra Wideband coverage, which might mean that your phone will finally see higher 5G speeds and a “5G UW” or “5G UWB” badge. After revealing that “100 million people in 1,700 cities” would receive 5G Ultra Wideband later this month, Verizon is renaming its unlimited plans and offering consumers additional hotspot bandwidth to experiment with to help raise awareness of the fact.
The titles of the new plans all begin with “5G,” so we now have 5G Start, 5G Play More, 5G Do More, and 5G Get More. These are the same ideas as before, but with different names. Start Unlimited, Play More Unlimited, Do More Unlimited, and Get More Unlimited were their previous names. They just removed “Unlimited” from the beginning and replaced it with “5G.”
And truly, the plans essentially haven’t altered, as far as their contents and functionality go either, apart of the hotspot stuff. For single lines, we still offer pricing that start at $70/mo and go up to $80/mo and $90/mo. The Start plan includes a lot of restrictions and no long-term freebies, whilst the Play More and Do More plans are unchanged save for an increase in hotspot bandwidth from 15GB to 25GB per month.
The most significant adjustment is likely in the 5G Get More package, where hotspot has increased from 30GB to 50GB each month. This package, according to Verizon, now includes total unlimited premium network connectivity with no slowdown. Hopefully, they can actually provide that. Last year, T-Mobile and AT&T introduced genuinely unlimited plans.
Verizon is aiming to get through the C-Band saga soon so that everyone may have a better 5G experience. If you’ll be using a lot of rapid data, you may want to look at one of these newly branded plans whenever they do. I switched not long ago since they were offering so many freebies.
