If you’re subscribed or planning on subscribing to Verizon’s Go Unlimited plan, this week your money will be getting you more access all across the continent. From January 25 onward, the Go Unlimited plan covers talk, text, and data charges while you’re in Canada and Mexico.
Before January 25, Go Unlimited customers traveling to Canada and Mexico have to get a TravelPass if they want their charges covered. The pass will only cost you five dollars a day, but it’s even better not to pay anything. And a Verizon spokesperson has assured PC Mag that “new and existing customers on the Go Unlimited plan can take their talk, text and data with them to Mexico and Canada at no extra charge.”
There are some caveats, of course. Access in Canada and Mexico won’t be truly as unlimited as in the United States. According to PC Mag, “access to 4G LTE data in Mexico and Canada will be capped at 500MB per day. After you eat through that, Verizon will throttle your connection to 2G speeds until the next day.”
Other new perks to be introduced on January 25 include unlimited calling from the US to Mexico and Canada.
