Default Verizon (again) offers unlimited data ($80/month for one line)

Verizon last offered unlimited data options to customers in 2012 before
killing the plans in favor of tiered data buckets where users share data
with other members of their family.

Last year the company made its first move back towards unlimited,
introducing a "Safety Mode" where customers who exceeded their mobile data
limits would see their data slowed to 2G speeds instead of being
automatically billed overage charges for additional gigabytes.

Verizon rivals put squeeze on No. 1 carrier's growth
While the competition does still undercut it on price, Verizon's plan
delivers high definition video and lets you use your smartphone as a
wireless hotspot for up to 10GB of data at no additional charge. T-Mobile
and Sprint limit their mobile video streams to a lower resolution, though
both carriers allow for users to purchase the ability to stream in HD.

Also last week, Sprint announced a new five-line unlimited data plan for
$90. In comparison, T-Mobile charges $70 per month for the first line and
$50 for the second. Four lines would cost $160 (each additional line is $20
monthly, up to eight lines).

Under Verizon's plan (more info on verizon.com) five lines would cost $200

http://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/n.../97827926/each
month (not including taxes or other fees). Verizon charges $180 for the
four lines, with each additional unlimited line costing $20 up to ten
lines. Customers can add a tablet to their plan for $20 monthly and a
smar****ch for $5.

Verizon will send through data at full LTE speeds until a customer
surpasses 22 GB for the month, then it may prioritize data during busy
times to prevent network congestion that could affect other customers.

I must be old-school, but with so much free Wi-Fi around, I can't
imagine why anyone is using 22GB of data and paying so much for it.

With four of us, we don't even use 4GB a month of data. Presently
spending about $85 a month for four lines on AT&T's network.

For mapping we use CoPilot, which stores maps locally (though I use Waze
occassionally). Especially nice on a 7"-8" tablet.

For music, we store massive quantities on our phone or tablet's MicroSD
cards. Or use Spotify's ability to download and store music for later
playback.

Some may have available just Wifi paid as LTE,
via Wifi router and LTE modem.

really depends on where you are. And many places the free wifi is much
slower than the mobile network.

For example, at a nearby restaurant the free wifi is 25KB/s down. Yes,
25KB/s. That is so slow that most things you try to do time out before
they can be completed. Granted, that is unusually slow, but speeds well
under broadband thresholds are very common.

With four of us, we don't even use 4GB a month of data. Presently
spending about $85 a month for four lines on AT&T's network.


I normally use 5-10GB a month by myself.
