How to use Verizon home hotspots without paying $60 or more
Verizon Wireless has announced it will offer unlimited home hotspots for $60, but not the full $70 price tag.
The plan comes at a time when the carrier has been struggling to keep customers on its network and is now scrambling to reduce its $50 price point for customers who want the hotspot service.
In a blog post, Verizon said it will start offering the service on January 11.
Verizon Home Hotspot, which includes unlimited home Wi-Fi, phone and data services, will cost $60 a month for up to two people.
It is similar to Verizon’s $70 unlimited plan, which is only available to customers who purchase the $60 plan and pay the full price.
But Verizon will not charge customers for using their home hotsps, a feature it previously made available to only some customers.
Customers will still be able to use their home WiFi hotspot for texting, downloading music, watching videos and streaming video.
Users will still need a Verizon account to use the hotspots, but they will need to sign up for Verizon Home Hotspots.
You can sign up to Verizon Home Wi-Stations at Verizon.com.
For $60 per month, customers will be able access home hotsets at a rate of 5 megabits per second.
At the time of writing, Verizon is offering the unlimited service for $70 per month for customers in the U.S. and Canada.
