Verizon Prepaid has a couple of offers expiring today/tomorrow. One is the discontinuation of a $65 unlimited hotspot data plan, and the other is a bonus data offer on Verizon Prepaid's $45 plan. The bonus data offer gives customers an extra 7GB of data to use with the plan for life, bringing the total allotment to 15GB.
Today, BestMVNO has learned that the bonus data offer will be indirectly replaced by a special offer made available through Verizon Prepaid and its network of dealers. Major Verizon Prepaid dealers include those using the VIDAPAY and ePay platforms. (This story was updated on 5/21/2019 to include that the offer is available directly through Verizon Wireless and not just through select Verizon Prepaid dealers. Data only plan discounts were also added to the article. )
The new offer is actually the recycling of a previous offer from Verizon Prepaid, double data for life. The promo must have performed very well for the brand. This will be the 3rd time since May of 2018 that double data for life has returned to Verizon Prepaid dealers.
Double Data For Life Available Plans And Pricing
The double data for life promo will again be available for single lines and family plans. Pricing is as follows:
- $30/month - 1GB of data, normally includes 0.5GB
- $40/month ($35 with autopay) - 6GB of data, normally includes 3GB. Additional lines can be added priced at $30/month ($25/month with autopay billing enabled).
- $50/month ($45 with autopay)- 16GB of data, normally includes 8GB. Additional lines can be added priced at $35/month ($30/month with autopay billing enabled).
Customers can also mix and match plans and still get the multi-line discounts shown.
All plans listed include unlimited talk, text, and data with the specified amount of data at 4G LTE data speeds before throttling to 2G. Unlimited international texting to over 200 countries and mobile hotspot are available on all plans. Video streaming is limited to a maximum resolution of 480p, and during times of heavy network traffic, data speeds will be slower than Verizon's postpaid customers. Taxes and fees cost extra.
Tablet And Jetpack Hotspot Plans With Double Data
Verizon's prepaid phone plans are not the only plans to get double data. The carrier's prepaid tablet and Jetpack hotspot plans also get double data. The plans are priced as follows:
- $35/month with autopay - 3GB of data plus 3GB of bonus data
- $45/month with autopay - 8GB of data plus 8GB of bonus data
- $65/month with autopay - 15GB of data plus 15GB of bonus data
All the data only plans include unlimited data that is throttled once the plans high speed allotment gets consumed. For the two cheapest plans, throttled data speeds get reduced to 2G data speeds. For the $65 plan, throttled data speeds are reduced to 600 Kbps, or what can be called 3G data speeds. All plans include HD video streaming at a resolution of up to 1080p when used in a tablet, however, when used in a Jetpack hotspot device, video streaming is limited to a maximum resolution of 720p.
There is no word as to how long this promotion will be made available. But you can get it by visiting your local VIDAPAY or ePay dealer, or online through Verizon.
