We’re only a few weeks away before T-Mobile unveils new Go5G plans, and now Verizon looks set to do the same. Several reports, as well as several confirmations via Reddit, suggest that Verizon will announce two new unlimited plans next week.

The new plans will reportedly arrive under the new “myPlan” identity with options Unlimited greeting And Unlimited Plus. These reports also suggest that they will replace all current Verizon Unlimited plans. Unlimited Welcome is actually the current option and is the most basic of Verizon’s unlimited plans, so it might just stick around while Unlimited Plus will be brand new.

As for the plan’s features, here’s a breakdown of them before we get to the “my plan” part:

  • Unlimited greeting: Unlimited 5G data, 480p streaming, no hotspot, $65 per month per line
  • Unlimited Plus: Unlimited 5G ultra-wideband data, 720p streaming, 30GB hotspot, 3-year price guarantee, “premium device deals”, $80 per month per line.

The current unlimited welcome plan also starts at $65 per line. The $80 Unlimited Plus plan will match the Play More and Do More pricing. Everyone should get discounts as more lines are added, as we’ve seen with Verizon over the years.

Now the “myPlan” branding idea for both of these plans means Verizon will let you choose is yours own privilege plan to add. As you probably know, Verizon’s current lineup of unlimited plans includes various free services such as the Disney+ bundle, Apple Music, or Apple Arcade. For these new myPlan offerings, these free services may be replaced by the ability to add as many add-ons as possible at $10/month each.

For example, you pay $10/month for the Disney+ package you’re currently getting for free, or $10/month for an Apple One, or another $10/month for a Walmart+ subscription. You can see in the training image below what this might look like and what some perks would be. All perks will cost $10 per month and will include a note on how much the customer can save each month by choosing this route.

Benefits of Verizon myPlan

For those who do mental math, yes, this seems like a bad plan proposal. As I mentioned above, the new Unlimited Plus plan will cost the same as Play More, but Play More includes the Disney+ package and Apple Arcade or Google Play Pass. Together, they are a bonus to your $20/month plan. For this new Unlimited Plus plan, you will have to pay an additional $20 per month, which increases your bill to $100 per month. Of course, here you get the flexibility to choose what you want and keep it if it wasn’t previously part of your plan. However, now charging people for things that were previously free is always a bad idea.

If you are currently on an unlimited 5G plan such as Get More, Play More, or Do More, you can keep your plan for now. Verizon usually lets you stick with either plan for a while before trying to squeeze you into something new. So don’t go crazy just yet. These new plans will most likely be offered to new customers to start with or those who upgrade.

Since I haven’t seen the detailed tutorial, I’m left wondering what Verizon is thinking here. I could see them charge $10 a month for each add-on with the Unlimited Welcome plan because it’s bare bones and intended as a starter plan. They should really consider offering 1-2 free perks for the Unlimited Plus plan, otherwise this plan shouldn’t be the choice for many. Like, you should immediately run to T-Mobile, pay less and get a few free services as part of your plan.

These new plans could appear as early as Monday, May 15th. If they appear, we will definitely give some answers to our questions.
