Last week, Sprint and T-Mobile had the best 4 line Family plan deals. Both offer Unlimited Voice, Text, and 4G SD LTE Data for $160. This week, Verizon joined the party. While Verizon still refuses to offer Unlimited 4G, their new offer may even be better than T-Mobile and Sprint's in several ways. T-Mobile dumped started all of these changes by dumping their tiered data plans in favor of one Unlimited VOice, Text and 4G LTE Standard definition 480p plan. If you wish to upgrade to their High Definition (1080p) 4G LTE, it is an extra $25 per line. Sprint did the same thing. The only difference is they charge $20 to upgrade to 1080p HD. For most people, 480p standard definition 4G is fine. After all it offers DVD-like picture quality and there will never be that annoying 2/3G buffering.,
While Verizon's $160 does not offer unlimited data, it does offer 20GB with "Save-Mode" (throttling) and carry over. That means for the first time, there will no longer be the potential for any end of month billing surprises. What makes Verizon's plans even more attractive are the fact that they include 1080p HD video, 4G LTE Hotspot at no extra charge, and no $5 per line extra payment charges.
Combine that with Verizon's superior nationwide footprint and reliability. Unfortunately, this deal is a limited time offering but if you get it, you can keep it for life.
Anybody want a new iPhone 7 for FREE, or an iPhone 7+ for $120? Like usual, T-Mobile started this and Sprint and Verizon hopped on. Anyone trading in an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6+ can get the above offers. It requires a 2 year commitment but who isn't used to staying with their carrier for two years. Ask me for details.
