BASKING RIDGE, N.J. — Working, learning or streaming? Verizon today announced the expansion of connected device options with the Unlimited Plus plan, supporting the evolving needs of customers demanding more reliable coverage and backup access when at home or on the go. Unlimited Plus gives customers double the 4G LTE premium data for jetpacks, tablets and laptops, and includes unlimited access to blazing-fast 5G Ultra Wideband speeds when connected on 5G Ultra Wideband devices1.
Creators and doers can add Unlimited Plus to their existing wireless plan for $30 per month2 , and existing customers can upgrade their current unlimited connected device plan for just $10 more per month. The new Unlimited Plus plan includes 30 GB of premium 4G LTE data, up from 15 GB in the standard Unlimited plan, so power users can greatly increase their ability to stream video, send files and browse the web at faster speeds3. Rather than fighting for Wi-Fi, the extra data helps manage increased needs for remote learning or work with a secure and personal connection. And, our connected device plans will include access to our upcoming 5G Nationwide network.4
A connected device plan built for a new connected world.
“As consumers demand more flexibility in where and how they work, we’ve created a plan that gives them more of the fast and dependable Internet they need, at home or on the go,” said Angie Klein, Verizon Senior Vice President, Consumer Segment Marketing. “For those not quite lucky enough to be eligible for 5G Home or Fios Internet when working or doing remote learning from home, Unlimited Plus also provides a fast backup option when the neighborhood Internet service isn’t good enough.”
Connected smartwatch plans made even easier
In addition to the introduction of Unlimited Plus, Verizon has simplified the options for connected smartwatch plans. As revealed earlier this week, all connected smartwatch plans are just $10 per month, whether using as a standalone plan to connect a watch or with NumberShare to use one mobile number for multiple devices. This price drop for our existing smartwatch plan supports new watches in the market, as well as other connected smartwatches available at Verizon. Existing customers on the standalone smartwatch plans will automatically receive the new lower pricing.
