Verizon’s $20 300MB Data Plan Starts Today, As Does New 4G Coverage


While I know 300MB of data is not nearly enough for some of you, Verizon’s giving owners the option to add a $20 plan that affords savings to those who use smartphones and feature phones but don’t necessarily use tons of data. It’s a promotional plan, though, so you’ll only have from today through September 30th to get in on it.

In related news, 15 new markets wake up to 4G LTE this morning while 10 more cities have gotten expansion love. If you have a phone capable of 4G I’d say away from the plan above – you’ll likely eat through that in a few days. Check below for the new 4G cities and be sure to contact Verizon or take a look at your account online if you’re interested in that data plan.

Tucson, Ariz.; Fayetteville/Springdale/Rogers, Ark.; Bakersfield and Salinas/Monterey/Seaside, Calif.; Fort Collins, Colo.; Frederick, Md.; Worcester, Mass.; Omaha, Neb./Council Bluffs, Iowa; Albany, Ithaca and Syracuse, N.Y.; Altoona and Johnstown, Pa.; Memphis, Tenn.; and Provo, Utah. The company is also expanding its 4G LTE network on Thursday in Washington, D.C.; Tampa, Fla.; Atlanta, Ga.; Baltimore, Md.; Boston, Mass.; Lansing, Mich.; New York, N.Y.; Cincinnati and Columbus, Ohio; and Salt Lake City-Ogden, Utah.

Update: Getting word that Blacksburg, VA and the Virginia Tech campus are getting 4G today, as well. A little nugget left out of the official press release, but welcomed all the same.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. I am glad I pay nothing for unlimited data on Verizon. This new plan sucks. Go over 300MB and get charged another $20.

    1. It’s not for you. It’s for someone who uses their phone for the occasional email and messages. For them, it saves a little money each month.

  2. T-Mobile’s $20/2GB plan > Verizon’s $20/300MB plan

    Verizon is raising the bar and AT&T will join them next year.

  3. A few days? Quentyn, on 4G, that’s a few minutes

    1. Why do you think faster data = more data? It’s the same amount, regardless of the speed in which it is downloaded.

  4. The end date of this promotion is interesting.

  5. Everything around Buffalo getting lit up with 4g but Buffalo, New York

  6. This all must be to scare consumers not to leave their carrier.

    No way in hell would I leave current subscriber to pay the fight data rates of ATT, TMo or Verizon.

    Anyone paying those rates are fools and taking it right in the tailpipe.

    If Sprint ever follows suit, I will go back to dumb phones, seriously.

  7. yay cheap things for a month!

    wait what?
    verizon protest?
    hrmmm… surely this price drop will bump that right off the fold =D

  8. Can someone please tell me why you can get 4G even in B.F.E. and it’s not in the state of Virginia?

    1. Isn’t 98% of Virginia B.F.E.? lol I

      In all honesty, I have no idea how they’re chosing who gets LTE. Every major market in South Carolina has it except one, yet there are major American cities that don’t. And that one exception is Myrtle Beach, who has the highest volume of people (when considering tourism, the state’s bread and butter, and that’s mostly just summer, but still). Meanwhile, we barely get 3G here while I assume they prep the towers. We’re constantly getting 1X.

  9. ha finally i can say my $25 for 500 MB in Canada is better then an American plan!

  10. This 300MB thing is only in select areas. People qualify off their number, so unless you live in the select areas you won’t be getting this from what I’ve been told.
