Starting next week, users with either of Verizon’s two unlimited plans can call and text to Mexico and Canada, as well as use data when visiting. Starting on January 25, Go Unlimited customers will get unlimited talk, text, and data in Mexico and Canada – something that was previously limited to Unlimited Beyond subscribers.
Just like Unlimited Beyond, coverage in Mexico and Canada for Go Unlimited customers limits 4G LTE data speeds to 500 MB each day. Speeds are reduced to 2G following this but are then reset at midnight EST. Additionally, Go Unlimited plans will now come with unlimited calling from the United States to Mexico and Canada. Using 4G LTE data in Mexico and Canada will be throttled to 2G speeds after 500MB a day. And although texts and calls are unlimited under usual circumstances, it might not be if more than half of your text, talk and data usage in a 60-day period is in Canada or Mexico. In that case, Verizon reserves the right to limit or remove the service from your plan.
Go Unlimited costs $160 or $40 per person each month for a family of four enrolled in Auto Pay. For the same four lines on Beyond Unlimited, the price is $200 a month or $50 per line. Again, you must be enrolled in Auto Pay to receive that price.
