The new ATT unlimited plan costs more than the Verizon plan.

Yes, they've added unlimited but eliminated their 12GB plan...you go from 8GB to 16, unless they have since eliminated that as well.

Trying to get into my own account since they have rolled this out, the only plan option I have been able to access, repeatedly, is the new unlimited.

"A glitch in the system" I'm told, when I call,

Additionally, they don't allow the employer discount on the unlimited plan, telling me I would save $.21 by switching.

I am still a loyal Verizon member, but I hate some of this crap.

Verizon brings back unlimited

We're on Verizon's 16GB plan as well. Didn't see that on their list of plan options anymore. However, I just had a radical thought. If each phone is limited to 10GB as a hot spot and our "Internet device" (a Cradlepoint LTE router) is limited the same way, then maybe we could hotspot up to 30 GB / month on our account. I will have to ask.

On all plans "unlimited" is true, sort of. If you're a heavy user, they slow down your download rate.
There's only so much bandwidth to service everyone.

As I said in my original post - a heavy video streaming user, using VoD services instead of traditional TV is probably going to run 200-500 GB a month.

So this talk of 22GB limits is really only practical for weekend warriors.

Spot on correct, of course. Guilty as charged, we're mostly weekend warriors. Even when we do go on longer trips, we don't stream video for the reason you noted above.

Verizon's "unlimited" plan is garbage. 10GB is nothing for hot-spots.

I use about 35 GB per month, and those extra large plans don't exist anymore. I am basically screwed. May have to switch carriers.

I completely agree with that, am just scheming for how I could maybe get more by hot-spotting every device on the plan.

Only 10GB hotspot use. The GOTCHA is in the details. Like T-Mobile's Simple Choice unlimited.

Incorrect. Just looked into it today. Hotspot OK. 22 gigs on each device you have at full speed. After that it drops back a little on speed. Guy described it to me as the difference in 1080p vs 720p. If you have 4 devices on your bill that would be 88 gigs before they cut your speed any.

This is wrapped up as a phone plan. You could in theory add a line, and stuff a sim in a mifi, but....

You're also going to experience "network optimization" after you cross 22gb of data.
Mifi is available on the unlimited. Was at Verizon store couple hours ago.

Not sure what you are looking at, but Hotspot is limited to 10 GB in the "unlimited" plan before it throttles. That is a fact. It's right on Verizon's website.

That "other" 12 GB HAS to be used on an untethered phone. IE: it's worthless for most of us.

And no, the difference between full 4G LTE ~30 Mbit per second versus 3G ~600 Kbps is a LOT different than 1080p vs 720p video.

Limiting all tethered/hotspot use to 10GB is a sleazeball move by Verizon.

I've got the unlimited data plan with a jetpack and thus far I've used 40gb with zero noticing difference and have 2 laptops 1 ipad and 1 Rouku stick plugged into my tv. I've been watching youtube like wildfire and will say I'm satisfied.

Go to http://www.speedtest.net/ and see how well your speed is

I have long searched for a better description of Verizon and you have presented it.

Geo, at 40 GB in can you tell me what numbers you are getting on speedtest.net?

Right now on my "normal" XXL plan I am getting:

Ping-39 ms
Down-25 Mbps
Up-16 Mbps
