Verizon has announced revamped unlimited plans
. The three existing plans have been renamed and lowered in price $5-10, with minimal changes in what they offer. A fourth plan has also been added at the middle price point, which trades media features for more productivity-oriented features. As before, there are progressive discounts for each line added to a family plan, but the tiers for those discounts have been tweaked. The new plans are $5 cheaper than the old plans for one, three, or four lines. Premium plans are $10 cheaper than the old plans for two lines, and a new 5-line tier is $10 cheaper (per month per line) than before. The cheapest plan, previously called Go Unlimited, is now called Start Unlimited
. As before, it includes "unlimited" 4G LTE data, but speeds may be reduced when the network is busy. It does not include HD video streaming nor 4G hotspot. 5G service is not included but can be added for $10/month. The old Beyond Unlimited plan is now called Play More Unlimited
. It includes 25 GB of "premium" 4G data, (which is always full-speed even when the network is busy,) up from the 22 GB included before. It also includes HD (720p) video streaming, 15 GB of 4G mobile hotspot data, and an Apple Music subscription. For a limited time, unlimited 5G service is also included. The new mid-range plan is called Do More Unlimited
. It's the same price as Play More Unlimited, but in place of HD video and Apple Music, it offers 50 GB of premium data, 500 GB of cloud storage, and 50% off a tablet or mobile hotspot. The top-end Above Unlimited plan is now called Get More Unlimited
. It offers 75 GB of premium data (as before) and 30 GB of 4G mobile hotspot data (up from 20 GB). It also offers everything all of the lower plans do, including HD video, cloud storage, Apple Music, and 5G. The new plans will be available starting Monday, August 5th.
