Verizon recently announced their new tiered data plans that have now replaced the older plans. One pretty big thing that’s missing from the tiered data is the unlimited 3G data plan that used to exist. That $30 unlimited data plan was nice but is no longer available. But Verizon has good news if you’re willing to upgrade to a 4G LTE phone.
So if you currently have a 3G smartphone on Verizon’s network and are using the $30 unlimited data plan you’ll be able to upgrade your 3G smartphone to a 4G LTE smartphone and then you’ll be able to keep your unlimited data plus for $30 a month you can get an unlimited mobile LTE hotspot which is pretty good. Verizon posted this news on their Twitter account today.
This is some really great news for Verizon customers. You get to continue using your unlimited 3G data plan and once the contract is up you can upgrade to an even better 4G LTE phone and still have unlimited data but on a much faster LTE network. Plus for $30 more a month you can turn your phone into a mobile hotspot with unlimited tethering. We’ll have to see how long this deal is available though.
