Verizon Wireless Unlimited Plans Include Disney+

Big news from Verizon Wireless! They just announced customers with an “Unlimited” plan would receive a free year of Disney’s new streaming service, Disney+, when it launches on November 12th. This deal is for new and existing Verizon Wireless customers.

With that announcement, and being a Verizon Wireless customer myself, I wanted to cover the differences between Verizon’s unlimited plans, and what features to expect.

Even without the Disney+ promotion, Verizon Wireless is already the best wireless provider in the United States. According to an in-depth study by RootMetrics, Verizon’s 4G LTE wireless network averages a download speed of 53.3 Mbps nationwide. Not only is it the fastest wireless network in the country, but Verizon Wireless is, on average, 40% faster than the 2nd fastest network in the country.

Verizon customers can get that super-fast network with no monthly data cap through their unlimited plans.

Verizon Wireless Unlimited Plans

Verizon offers four tiers of unlimited data plans. They are:

  • Get More Unlimited – The top tier plan with all the bell and whistles
  • Do More Unlimited – geared toward productivity and business
  • Play More Unlimited – Designed for music and video streaming
  • Start Unlimited – The no-frills unlimited plan

The price of Verizon’s unlimited plans can range from $30 per line to $100 per line based on the number of lines and plan features. Before I go over the difference between each plan, I wanted to cover what Verizon means when they say “Unlimited” data.

Verizon Wireless Unlimited 4G LTE Data – Verizon’s Unlimited plans do not put a monthly cap on this 4G LTE data. However, if the network becomes congested, Verizon may provide a slower speed to compensate for the heavy traffic. Whether or not your service is slowed during heavy network traffic is dependant on your plan and data usage.

Let’s break down each of Verizon Unlimited Wireless plan’s pricing, features, and unlimited 4G LTE data details.

Verizon Get More Unlimited

This is Verizon’s top tier plan. As you will see in a second, this plan is fully loaded when it comes to wireless data usage
