Verizon offers new prepaid data plans for tablet and hotspot users
While Verizon might receive a lot of flack over pricing, customer service, and other related issues, few deny that the carrier remains one of the best options when it comes to nationwide coverage. Although it isn’t without its own dead zones, few other carriers come close to the same footprint.
With that in mind, Verizon has now introduced new prepaid data plans for tablet and hotspot users, perfect for when you need access to Verizon’s network while traveling, or just as a backup option for when your home network is down. As one would expect, pricing here isn’t amazing, but it isn’t that terrible either. For $15 a week, you’ll get 500MB of data, you can get 1GB for $20 a month, 2GB for $35 that will last 2 months, 5GB for $60 that will last 2 months, or 10GB for $100 that will last for 2 months.
What do you think, are these data plans worth it, especially for those traveling into areas where Verizon’s network is stronger than its competitors?
