Verizon Wireless has announced that it will be offering unlimited data plans on AT &T’s LTE network, and the carrier will also be selling a “WiFi Smartphone Bundle,” a phone with a dedicated LTE hotspot.
These new data plans will be available in limited quantities starting March 11, and they will cost $100 per month, a price that’s comparable to the new Verizon iPhone 5s or the Google Pixel 2 XL.
AT&t LTE is the latest service to offer high-speed connectivity on the network, which allows Verizon customers to access faster speeds on some networks, and to stream video on other networks.
Verizon has also recently rolled out a new feature called the “Ultrafast Hotspot,” which allows customers to upload video to a hotspot with a speed of up to 2 gigabits per second.
Verizon’s new data plan also comes on the heels of the carrier’s $70 billion acquisition of T-Mobile US.
Verizon said the new data service will give Verizon Wireless customers “access to a more expansive and vibrant wireless experience,” as well as an improved “fiber and video performance” that it said will allow the company to offer “the best of both worlds.”
The new data offers are available in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Australia.
In addition to the AT&’t LTE plan, Verizon will also offer a $30 per month “data upgrade” for a $20 credit towards a future LTE hotspots.
The company said that users who upgrade will be able to get up to an additional 100 megabytes per month in unlimited data.
AT <amp;ampt wireless, which is a division of Verizon Wireless, will be selling the $50 per month Ultrafast Hotspots, and will offer a similar deal to Verizon’s LTE hotspads.
Verizon Wireless also announced that AT<amps LTE customers will get “up to 10GB per month of roaming access,” while AT>amplt wireless customers will be getting unlimited data and roaming access.
The carrier is also rolling out a number of other new data packages, including a new unlimited data package that will be offered in limited quantity starting March 1, and a $70 per month data package.
AT;amp&lt and Verizon Wireless are both launching their new LTE hotsprings in the coming weeks, and are hoping to have these devices available by the end of the year.
