When will Verizon truly be unlimited ? It is apparently unlimited but after 25 gigs it slows down so far that it is useless.  I may use 25 gigs every 4 months then Hours for a simple download.  SORRY!

I think that is for current month usage, then start over next month, until you hit 25GB.

Yes that is bs, but how much do you use per month?  If you don’t stream movies you may use only 5gb per month!

You have unlimited accsess for 25 GB each month.  No body is going to give you "unlimited", for $50 a month...get real.

I had unlimited with Sprint for $50.00 a month no throttling. It is their play on words. You do have unlimited internet but after the 25 gigs it is so SSSSSSLLLLLOOOOOOWWWWW it is useless. They don't cut you off they slow you to nothing.

I think that a lot of the confusion, at least from Verizon, is of their own making. When they first were selling data plans a few years ago it was possible to sign up for an 'unlimited' plan that was truly unlimited. Use as much data as you cared to - no limits and no throttling. Of course, at that time no one anticipated how much data customers would use as phones and tablets grew more powerful. When things got out of hand they started to impose limits and for a while did away with the unlimited plans. They did everything they could to get people still on the original 'unlimited' plan off of it. Now they've started to do unlimited plans again, but this time around these are different and not really unlimited.

I think that a more accurate description for these plans would be 'high limit' and not unlimited. They are not unlimited according to the definition Verizon itself created just a few years ago.

My definition of unlimited is just what it sounds like - a plan with no limits on usage. Saying that it's unlimited but then setting a cutoff point for high speed use at 25 GB is pointless and defies the definition of unlimited. If they want to sell a 25 GB plan then call it that and leave the word unlimited out of the conversation.

I keep hearing people saying that it is 25gig a month.  Mine is only 15gig a month, I even called because my "plan is "Beyond Unlimited" which is a cap 22gig at the high speeds, then slows down.  However that 22 gig is across all devices in your plan and any hot spot is only 15gig no matter how much data you have in the "Beyond Unlimited".  I was on the phone for three different calls trying to figure this out because my bill says "Beyond Unlimited" lol.  I even paid the extra $35 onemonth for an extra 5 gig for the Beyond unlimited, but of course that did not apply to the hotspot.  The part that is the most frustrating thing is I only have the hotspot and no other lines so it is the only device on the account.  You would have thought that they would have not allowed me to throw away my money on the extra 5 gig which I could not even use on my hot spot.

OK Rant over, but was curious why people are saying 25gig, when everything I see is 15 gig on a hotspot.  BTW I pay $95 a moth.

Actually Brian, you and I both have the original socalled Verizon Unlimited. The talk is about FCMA/Verizon Unlimited. This is the plan that was offered (I think) earlier this year for Unlimited internet for $49.00 per month. I also tried to get changed over to the plan three times, I'm paying $65.00 per month plus a $10.00 per month line charge for the 22 gig farce of a plan. The FMCA version is supposed to be $49.00 for 25 gig for only one hotspot device, plus of course all over 25 gig at creepy crawley, hope this helps understanding where 25 is coming from.

I believe mine is 15 gig on the MiFi and 7 gig on my phone hot spot before it slows down.  When I asked how much extra the data was I was told $30.  I'm at 30 gig now on my MiFi but most of the time the speed is not too bad. Reset in 3 days.

I thought about signing up for the FMCA plan for 25gb on the hotspot but what that does is adds 10gb's to my existing 15gb that I get already on my hotspot for an added $50, I thought that was too much.

This is what I do. I have the Verizon "unlimited plan" on my whole account which gives me 15gb of hotspot data on each of my devices ( I have 4, 2 phones, 1 tablet and a hotpost) for a total of 60gbs each month at the high speed. I do have to switch devices when one reaches its 15gb's kind of a hassle but it works out great for us. I have used up to 40gb in one month and was never throttled. On our plan I pay $40 per line but they have other plans too
