Verizon prepaid plans get massive data limit increase for no extra money

Perhaps to compete with T-Mobile’s Binge On and AT&T’s revival of the unlimited data plan, Verizon has just granted its prepaid customers a massive data cap boost. New prepaid customers can now enjoy almost double the data limits previously offered for no extra money, with a nice additional data bonus thrown on top for good measure.

Anyone signing up for a prepaid Verizon plan with a new phone activation will be able to get 2 GB of data for $45/month or 5 GB of data for $60/month – that’s up from 1 GB and 3 GB respectively for the same prices. What’s more, if those customers sign up for Auto Pay, they’ll enjoy an additional GB per month for free, taking the data limits up to 3 GB and 6 GB respectively.

If you’re looking round for a new carrier, be reminded that Verizon has the best coverage in the U.S. (if not the fastest LTE service – that honor goes to T-Mobile, just). Verizon’s prepaid plans include unlimited talk and text in the U.S. with free texting to your friends in the great white north and south of the border.
