A Data Boost is extra high-speed data the Account Owner or Account Manager can buy in My Verizon to help the account's lines avoid slower connection speeds.
How the Data Boost is used depends on your plan:
|Your plan||What buying a Data Boost does|
|Unlimited Ultimate, Unlimited Plus and most previously-available unlimited mobile phone plans.||When you add a 5 GB Data Boost to a line on your account, Mobile Hotspot 4G LTE / 5G data-boost-faqs/ speed resumes for that line. When you go over your plan's data allowance, your general device use and Mobile Hotspot data may still be temporarily slower than other traffic in times of congestion.|
|Unlimited Welcome||Data Boosts aren't available unless you first buy the $10/month 100 GB Mobile Hotspot perk* You can then add a data boost to that perk if needed.|
|Go Unlimited**||Data Boosts aren't available.|
|Shared Data Plan – 5GB**, Shared Data Plan – 10GB**, The new Verizon Plan (shared data plans, e.g., S, M, L)**||Buy a Data Boost to add 1 GB of 4G LTE / 5G
|More Unlimited and Essential, Plus, Pro & Premium plans for mobile hotspot devices||Buy a Data Boost to add 5 GB more of 4G LTE / 5G
|Prepaid monthly phone plans***||You can buy more high speed data for your general device use, including Mobile Hotspot.|
*This perk isn't available to add to Welcome Unlimited. You can change to Unlimited Welcome and add the perk in My Verizon.
**These plans are no longer available to add to accounts.
