Verizon has never been particularly generous when it comes to diversity of its prepaid plans. In fact, to say that compared with other carriers the Big Red’s offer is limited would be a major understatement. It seems, however, that a wind of change is blowing over Verizon bringing much anticipated improvements with it. According to leaked information, Verizon is about to add to its offer a new $60 prepaid plan with 2.5GB data cap.
Verizon New Prepaid Plans for 2015
If the leak is true, the new prepaid plan will be available for purchase starting March 1st. The offer will join Verizon’s existing $45 plan and will include unlimited talk, text and 2.5GB of data. Moreover, users who opt for AutoPay will get extra 500MB of data for free. For comparison, the $45 plan comes with 1GB of data in addition to unlimited talk and text, not counting the AutoPay bonus.
Customers who are on one of the basic phone plans should get ready for some changes too. On March 1st, the existing $35 and $45 plans will supposedly cease to exist and will be replaced by just one plan, combining all the best from current plans. It will cost $35 and is expected to include unlimited talk and text and 500MB of data. Just to remind you, the existing $35 plan offers only 500 minutes for talk services. The new basic phone plan is also eligible for the AutoPay 500MB bonus.
The leaked document was provided by an anonymous source and it looks legit. However, since Verizon hasn’t confirmed its will to launch a new prepaid option, we would suggest approaching the news with cautious optimism. There is always the possibility that someone was having a little too much fun with Verizon logo, but at this point we have no reason to think that that’s what happened. For now, everything points to Verizon getting ready to expand its prepaid offer with a new plan, and it’s a pretty good one, we must add.
