New Verizon Plans Boosts Data, Adds Safety Mode Michael Kwan July 7, 2016 News Are you finding that your monthly plan with Verizon isn’t quite cutting the mustard anymore? Want to throw some more cash at Big Red to enjoy that delicious 4G LTE? A sweeping selection of new Verizon plans have now been dished out and they come with some new features too. Two things will strike you immediately about the new Verizon plans. First, they’re all more expensive than the plans they replace. Second, and this is the good news, all of them also come with more data than the plans they replace too. The old $30 small plan used to come with 1GB of data, but the new $35 small plan gets 2GB. The old $60 large plan was for 6GB, whereas the new $70 large plan provides you with 8GB. Dollar for dollar, you are getting more. They’re just asking for more dollars. Perhaps more importantly, a series of new features accompany these new Verizon plans too. They all boast Carryover Data, so any unused data gets bumped over to the next month. Safety Mode — which is a $5 option for the small, medium and large plans, and free with the XL and XXL plans — throttles you down to an abysmal 128 kbps after you reach your monthly cap, but then you get to avoid overages. If you want to get back on that LTE train, you can fork up $15 per gig for Data Boost. All of that can be conveniently accomplished through the new My Verizon app. The new plans are available now for both new and existing customers. Via Lifehacker and Verizon Share This With The World!
