Verizon launches a third ‘unlimited’ plan; will someone please tell Verizon what ‘unlimited’ means?

“Verizon is launching a new service plan today called Above Unlimited, which is the third unlimited plan the carrier currently offers,” Jacob Kastrenakes writes for The Verge.

“As the presence of three ‘unlimited’ plans might indicate, none of these plans really offer unlimited data, but Above Unlimited at least offers the most not-unlimited data out of the three plans: you’re only subject to throttling after using 75GB of data a month, or 20GB of usage as a hot spot,” Kastrenakes writes. “After those limits, your plan is subject to throttling ‘in times of congestion’ until your allotment resets.”

“The new plan starts at $95 per month for a single line,” Kastrenakes writes. “That’s $10 more than the Beyond Unlimited Plan, which offers 22GB of data and 15GB of hot spot usage before throttling, and $20 more than Go Unlimited…”

MacDailyNews Take: As original iPhone owners, we vaguely remember having an “Actual Unlimited” plan. Those days are long gone (having switched to Verizon as soon as they finally got the iPhone).

On, BTW: Some enterprising ambulance chaser should sue Verizon for false advertising.

  1. I would imagine that if taken tho court, the scumbags would argue that you can have an unlimited amount of data, but once you have used more than a specified amount in one month, you might get that unlimited amount of data at a slower rate if the network is busy.

    I’ve no idea how that sort of argument might stand up in an American court, but I think any company would struggle to get such a claim past the advertising regulations on this side of the pond. Unlimited is a very specific word and if a plan is advertised as being unlimited, that’s exactly what it should be at all times.

  2. With net neutrality gone, it doesn’t matter anymore. They can do as they please. But if you limit the speed on data, it is limited data also. Just because you have ACCESS to data (Republican talking point) doesn’t mean unlimited.

  3. Couldn’t agree more Verizon is the most crooked company on the planet all of our COMMs are trash but they definitely win the prize.. i’m a Verizon customer but they disgust me
