New Verizon unlimited plans (myPlan) met with backlash
Here’s a glimpse of the article in video form:
Original story follows:
Verizon recently announced the new tier for unlimited plans (myPlan) that will replace the existing ones. myPlan will come with Unlimited Welcome and Unlimited Plus options, of which, the former is the most basic.
However, the company has now done away with the free unlimited bundles that allowed one to stream content from Disney+, ESPN+, or Hulu.
Although, subscribers can still opt for such perks with an additional payment of $10 per add-on. In addition to this, you can also choose from Apple Music, Apple One, smartwatch data, Walmart+ membership, and much more.
You can also get additional 100GB mobile hotspot data and 2TB cloud storage as well.
New Verizon unlimited plans
The new Unlimited Welcome plan starts at $65/mo. for single line users and comes with Unlimited 5G data and 480p streaming.
In comparison to this, Unlimited Plus comes with Unlimited 5G UW (Ultra-Wideband) data, 720p streaming, and 30GB hotspot data at $80/mo. for a single line. These plans are set to go live on May 18.
However, some Verizon users (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8) are unhappy as they believe there is no point in paying extra for services when competitors provide them for considerably lower prices.
Some subscribers even believe that Verizon is going to lose its market share after this decision.
A user suggests that the company should introduce a premium plan that has unlimited global roaming with high speed connectivity at a fair price.
Another user mentions that currently it costs them about $150/month with all the necessary add-ons on the Verizon Large plan. And they believe that migrating over to the Verizon Play More plan would be a better deal for them.
On the other hand, some are of the view that the 500GB data cap is quite low on the soon to be introduced unlimited plans. In addition to this, no support for 4K streaming is quite a deal breaker as well.
Verizon 5g play more with auto pay is $80 per month, Ryan Reynolds Mint Mobile is $15 per month, why haven’t the masses left for mint???? People are comparing networks by the price, instated of reliability.
New Plans Set to Throttle After 500GB, Act Now To Get Grandfathered.
Customers are even thinking of migrating into existing unlimited plans in order to get grandfathered and reap the additional benefits before the launch of new ones. Although, a section of users is supportive of the company’s decision.
They claim that the company did the right thing by removing the unnecessary bundled add-ons and increasing the high-speed data limit.
The new plans are said to come into effect from May 18, which is when we’ll get the full details of what Verizon has in store.
