This morning, Verizon announced that its prepaid plans are getting more data without a price hike, a move that seems to be a common occurrence with US wireless carriers as of late. Both AT&T and T-Mobile upped their buckets within the past month while keeping their prices the same. This change lines Verizon’s offerings up with what AT&T just did.
With Verizon prepaid, your options are now $45 for 2GB of data or $60 for 5GB of data per month. Those numbers are up from 1GB and 3GB, respectively. Keep in mind that you can get even more data through Verizon by signing up for auto-pay each month. If you schedule automatic payments with Big Red’s prepaid, they’ll toss in an extra 1GB of bonus data per month. With auto-pay, you then jump those plans to 3GB for $45 and 6GB for $60.
As a reminder, Verizon’s prepaid plans also included unlimited talk and text.
