Shoppers looking for a prepaid phone will have two more options to choose from on Verizon's network. Starting November 13, new 5 GB and 10 GB data plans join the carrier's 3GB and 6GB plans.
- 5GB plan: $50 a month gets you unlimited talk and text in the U.S., carryover data when you pay on time, mobile hotspot capabilities and international messaging to over 200 countries.
- 10GB plan: $70 gets you all of the above, and also adds on unlimited calling to Canada and Mexico.
Verizon's more aggressive prepaid plans target carriers like T-Mobile in an ongoing battle for subscribers. While T-Mobile positions itself as a contract-free carrier, Verizon has traditionally grown its foundation on post-paid subscribers, who pay for the phone month-to-month after signing a two-year contract. Moves like T-Mobile's attack on Verizon's Google Pixel costs pressure the nation's largest network to adapt.
