Remember our report from almost two weeks back claiming that Verizon is planning to expand 4G LTE data to its prepaid service? We are happy to confirm that it wasn’t just a rumor and the carrier indeed now allows 4G LTE phones on ALLSET plans. Starting today, users can forget about irritatingly slow 3G data and jump on much faster 4G LTE network.
Verizon 4G LTE phones now compatible with ALLSET prepaid plans
When we first heard about Verizon’s plans to introduce LTE data to ALLSET plans, we were worried that the carrier might feel like bumping up prices of the plans. Luckily for Verizon subscribers the worst-case scenario didn’t happen and prices remain the same as before. It means that for $45 per month you will get unlimited talk and text as well as 500 MB of data.
If you need data only to check email once in a while, download a new app or occasionally check up on your friends on Facebook, those 500 MB are likely to last through one month. However, if you are a heady data user, you might find yourself in need of additional data package.
Verizon offers three options in BRIDGE DATA – for 500 MB of data you will have to pay $5, 1 GB costs $10 and $20 will buy you 3 GB. You will have 30 days to use the additional 500 MB of data; 1 GB and 3 GB, on the other hand expire in 90 days. Moreover, if you sign up for Auto Pay, Verizon will throw in another 500 MB of data for free. Let’s do a quick math and we get up to 4 GB of 4G LTE data for just $65 per month. Not bad at all, especially compared to other carriers’ offers.
Verizon has quite a selection of 4G LTE handsets to go with its prepaid service including such big names as the Moto X, Galaxy S4, Galaxy S5, and HTC One. You are not required to buy any of these, though. If you happen to own a phone that will be compatible with Verizon’s LTE network, you can activate it on ALLSET service free of charge and enjoy fast data with no contract obligations.
