Verizon Strike 2016 News: Company Launches New Prepaid Plans After Month-Long Strike

Verizon has launched new prepaid plans with bigger data for its customers. This comes after the Verizon strike 2016 has reached the 30-day mark.

Yahoo reported that Verizon Wireless has revamped its prepaid plans in time for summer. Consumers can now get 2GB of data for $45 per month plan. 5GB is given for $60 per month.

Moreover, those who sign up for auto pay will get an extra 1GB of data. This provides 3GB and 6GB for $45 and $60 a month, respectively.

The publication noted that Verizon offered the same plans on February. It was also announced that the changes will be permanent by May 15.

The $45 per month plan had 1GB, previously, while the $60 Verizon plan gave 3GB to its customers. The extra 1GB option was already in place for those who enroll in auto pay.

Customers who take the $60 plan will also get unlimited calling to Canada and Mexico for free. Both plans provide unlimited talk and text in the U.S.

Extra data can be purchased as well. An additional 500MB, 1GB or 3GB can be bought for $5, $10 or $20, respectively. The 500MB can be used within 30 days or 90 days for the 1GB and 3GB.

Tech Radar listed down the 5 tiers of Verizon's postpaid plans. The telecommunications company offers 1GB for $30 per month and 3GB of data for $45 per month.

Verizon also provides 6GB for $60 per month. Its extra-large and XXL plans offer 12GB and 18GB for $80 and $100 per month, respectively.

The revamped plans come after the Verizon strike 2016 has hit its 30-day mark. According to, no new talks have been scheduled between the company and the unions.

It was previously reported that Verizon will push through with its Yahoo sale bid. The second round of bidders in the Yahoo sale has already started holding all-day meetings with the Internet giant's top management, including Marissa Mayer.
