How much are you paying for your Unlimited plan?

Even if your plan was a killer deal at the time, the competition between carriers has only been growing fiercer. This month, Verizon and Sprint are both pulling out all the stops to attract new customers with an impressive lineup of Unlimited plans, but you’ll have to act before January 31.

Keep your monthly bill in mind as you browse these offerings:


(Note: Verizon’s Unlimited plans here are part of a family mix-and-match promotion. The more phones you bring on, the cheaper your rate per device (1-4 phones). Subscribers don’t all have to have the same plan – you might choose two devices on Go Unlimited, one on Beyond Unlimited, and another on Above Unlimited. That way different family members only pay for the plans they need) 


Verizon Go Unlimited

Go Unlimited is Verizon’s budget-conscious offering of the bunch. Unlimited talk, text, and data with mobile hotspot capabilities and access to Apple Music for six months. You’ll also get a $250 prepaid Mastercard when you bring your own eligible phone.

1 phone – $75
2 phones – $65
3 phones – $50
4 phones – $40

Includes

  • Unlimited 4G LTE data
  • Unlimited talk & text
  • DVD-quality streaming (480p)
  • Unlimited mobile hotspot (600Kbps)
  • Verizon Up Rewards
  • Mexico & Canada talk, text, & data included
  • Apple Music free for six months


Verizon Beyond Unlimited

Beyond Unlimited is for users who stream lots of music or video. Of course you’ll get unlimited talk, text, and data with high-speed mobile hotspot capabilities, but a full Apple Music membership is also included. Streaming is HD-Quality (720p).

Beyond Unlimited also has Premium Unlimited 4G LTE Data to the tune of 22GB. What Verizon means by “Premium” is that for your first 22GB of data every month, your traffic will be handled with priority. After 22GB, you may experience slowdowns during times of heavy use. 

Once more, $250 prepaid Mastercards are offered to those bringing their own eligible devices.

1 phone – $85
2 phones – $80
3 phones – $60
4 phones – $50

Includes

  • Premium unlimited 4G LTE data (22GB)

Verizon Above Unlimited

Above Unlimited is Verizon’s powerhouse offering. If you’re a frequent flyer who needs global connection or a power user who churns through data at an incredible rate, this is the plan for you.

Naturally, you get unlimited talk, text, and data and high speed mobile hotspot capability. Apple Music is included, as are five travel passes every month that can be used in over 130 countries. The Premium Unlimited here snags you 75GB of uncompromised data monthly, and your streaming quality is HD (720p). Furthermore, you get half a TB of storage on the Verizon Cloud.

1 phone – $95
2 phones – $90
3 phones – $70
4 phones – $60

Sprint Unlimited Kickstart

Sprint’s Unlimited Kickstart is a stripped-down plan that offers basic unlimited service at a very competitive price. Don’t expect any extra features with this one, but if all you want is to get away from data restrictions and not worry about extra fees, it’s a pretty solid deal.

There are no leasing options with Unlimited Kickstart. Bring your own phone or buy one from Sprint outright, then you’re free to enjoy your unlimited access for just $25 per month.

Includes

  • Unlimited talk, text & data


Sprint Unlimited Basic

Sprint Unlimited Basic is Ol’ Yeller’s default offering going at a promotional rate for a limited time. In addition to unlimited talk, text, and data, you’ll get 500MB of high speed mobile hotspot capability followed by unlimited data at 3G speeds. Bring your own phone, or lease one.

Unlimited Basic also comes with a Hulu subscription, which is a definite perk. 

This plan will be particularly attractive to families, as savings increase dramatically if you have 3-5 people on your plan:

1 phone – $60
2 phones – $100
3 phones – $100 (through 1/31/20 then $120/mo.)
4 phones – $100 (through 1/31/20 then $140/mo.)
5 phones – $100 (through 1/31/20 then $160/mo.)

Includes

  • Unlimited talk, text & data
  • Sprint Flex Lease
  • Mobile motspot
  • Hulu included

Sprint Free Unlimited

You read that right. Sprint is running a limited time promotion that offers Unlimited service for a full year at $0 per month.

If that’s not a deal, I don’t know what is.

This is offer is available for those bringing along their own eligible device. There are no annual contracts or activation fees, and the total savings allegedly exceed $800 in the first year. This version of Sprint Unlimited doesn’t include Hulu, and some other restrictions apply.

Verizon and Sprint are certainly kicking off 2019 with a bang. If you’re paying more for less on your current plan, it might be a good time to make the swap to a new one. Just remember to act before January 31!
