Gordon, My unlimited plan has always cost more than the price increase, Here the article is about people who have unlimited 4G plans on their phone.
My unlimited plan is on a 3G hotspot. It costs me $60 a month and have paying it for 8 years. I typically use 100 Gbytes a month mostly for TV, about 10 Gbytes for Computers and phones.
Note this hotspot runs at 3G speeds, not the faster 4G speeds. It is definitely fast enough for every thing we do on our computers and fast enough for us to watch everything on TV, (We just watched the wedding/honeymoon of Doc Martin,)
Tonight 3G is running at about 2 Mbits per second, while 4G at our house is running at about 20 Mbits per second. Though 4G is running 10 times as fast for most things we do it's not necessary.
We also have 4 G bytes of 4G data that we share on our smartphones, primarily used when we're not home. Most of the time our phones use the 3G wireless at home.
We do pay a lot for phone service but it serves us well. I'm always looking something up on the internet. I'm an avid questioner, amazingly to me I can now get answers to anything. You can't imagine how happy that makes me.
One nice thing about Verizon is you can go on line and suspend service without penalty.
