Verizon Strikes Again!
#31
I've been with Verizon for many years now, and still have the the old unlimited plan. As a truck driver and now full time van dweller I've always been in excess of 100 gb's a month traveling 49 states and all provinces of Canada (I pay an additional $25 international fee). Never once have they said anything in the last 15+ years. My phone/iPad is my radio/tv/Netflix/Amazon viewer. I also take/send/post many videos and pictures.

I've called them a couple times about my usage after hearing/reading things like this. Their response as recent as last week has always been, not to worry, my account is unlimited. Then they follow up by asking me if I'm ready to upgrade my phone. They receive $250 a month from me. They get a good fee and I receive a great service. Great coverage with few exceptions thanks to their partnerships.

Even while not roaming.

Some are grandfathered in to true unlimited, those accounts go for thousands if they can even be transferred anymore.

New "so-called unlimited" all have fine print, the top X% of "abusers" get at least throttled.
