Your prepaid questions answered.
Prepaid data plans are available for:
- Mobile hotspots
- Network-capable computers and laptops
Many things you do on a mobile device require data, like accessing the internet, streaming music and using GPS.
While your actual usage may be different, here's a general idea of how much data you may use each month per device based on certain usage habits:
|Usage habits||Data needed per device|
|You mostly talk and text, but use social media occasionally||Less than 5 GB/month|
|You stream music, upload photos on social media and browse the internet||5 - 10 GB/month|
|You stream video and are always online||10+ GB/month|
These numbers are approximate and don't represent your personal data usage. Visit My Verizon to see your personal data usage, if you have any, to better know which data plan is right for you.
If you sign up for a plan and find you use more or less data than expected, you can change your plan in My Verizon to better fit your usage needs.
Note: Data usage for mobile hotspots can be much higher depending on how many devices are connected and how much those devices are streaming videos and music. For example, if you have 3 devices connected and streaming videos or music, the data usage for the mobile hotspot may be 30+ GBs.
After you exceed your high speed data allowance on your data only plan, your data speed will be reduced to 3 Mbps on 5G Ultra Wideband and 600 Kbps on 5G Nationwide / 4G LTE for the rest of the month.*
Additional high speed data isn’t available for purchase on prepaid data only plans. But you can change your plan as needed in My Verizon.
