Their latest data plan offering gives you 100MBs of data for $25. International data plans are nothing new to Verizon or their customers. They have been offering a tired plan for some time. Previously it was $30 for 50 MBs, $75 for 150MB or $125 for 300MB. The new plan will clear out the 50MB option, double your data and save you $5 in the process. You still need to watch your P’s and Qs though. Once you hit that 100MBs you will rack up charges. They explain the rates are $0.005 per KB, Sounds low doesn’t it? Well, that translates into $5.12 per 1MB. Which is easily achievable if you are a heavy data using individual. We don’t suggest streaming Netflix or watching YouTube videos while on vacation outside the U.S. The data rates drop slightly if you are headed to Canada, $0.002 per KB, or about $2 per MB.
No matter how you look at it, people take trips. Be it for business, for pleasure or for both. Sometimes you need to spend a little to get a little. It sure beats the $5000 bill I have seen for kids watching Netflix while on vacation in the Caribbean, silly kids.
