Verizon Launches A Third “Above Unlimited” Plan For What?

Verizon has already been having two other plans in offering unlimited data, and the company or the US carrier now has decided to launch a new and third of its kind, called it “Above Unlimited.” Here are the details on it.

By launching a new service plan today, Verizon Wireless’s “Above Unlimited” will go live on June 18. This is the most expensive option – starting at $95 per month for a single line – or else, the first line in a family account.

The third unlimited plan the carrier currently offers is the Above Unlimited. As the presence of three “unlimited” plans might indicate, none of these plans really offer unlimited data, but Above Unlimited at least offers 75GB of data a month, or 20GB of usage as a hot spot. Just after those limits, you most not-unlimited data 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, which is $10 more than the Beyond Unlimited Plan – offers 22GB of data and 15GB of hotspot usage before throttling, and an extra $20 more than Go Unlimited. After that, each subsequent line will drop in the per-month price, down to $60 per month for the fourth line and beyond.

The carrier is also announcing another helpful update for families using unlimited plans. It’ll now allow different phones to have different versions of the plan, instead of requiring every line to use the exact same service option.

For that increased price you get “premium unlimited 4G LTE data,” which Verizon states won’t get throttled even in congested period unless a user has used or surpassed that 75GB data in a month. So, the Above Unlimited Plan also offers unlimited talk and text, 5 TravelPasses per month which can be used in 130 different countries around the world, unlimited mobile hotspot data (20GB of which is LTE), and 500GB of Verizon’s cloud storage. One other thing we missed is, this plan caps video streaming at 740p.

In fact, Verizon is going to let subscribers mix-and-match these plans from this point on. You can also apply the cheapest unlimited plan, Go Unlimited, to a line that doesn’t use a lot of data per month, and then use Above Unlimited for the line that is the most data hungry.

All you decide is your choice, the better. Those changes and the new Above Unlimited plan will be available on June 18th.
