Verizon is offering a new phone service, Yahoo Mobile, that boasts unlimited data, text, and voice, at an affordable price but there’s still a catch…
Back in 2017, Verizon, one of the largest telecoms in the United States, acquired Yahoo! for $4.48 billion. Since that time, the conglomerate has attempted to turn around the once popular internet organization into something worthwhile. Although, it’s never been able to strike a chord with the public. Now, it’s trying yet again with a new idea.
Verizon Unveils Yahoo Mobile 4G Wireless $40 Unlimited Plan with No Data Cap
Verizon has unveiled Yahoo Mobile, a wireless phone service, that costs just $0 per month and gives customers unlimited voice, data, and text — all, without a contract. Moreover, the company promises customers won’t be subjected to throttling through data caps:
“Do you slow down my connection based on how much data I use?
Never. Yahoo Mobile won’t slow you down based on your data usage. However, when the network gets congested, your data could slow down for a bit. But this is common for any person on any carrier.”
However, customers will not necessarily enjoy blazing fast speeds, as one section of a FAQ Page reveals:
“In times of traffic, your data may be temporarily slower than other traffic. †Speeds capped at 5 Mbps and limited to one tethered device at a time.”
Still, it’s a good deal, costing just $39.99 per month for unlimited text, talk, and data to-boot. But, there’s a catch, of course. It’s solely on Verizon’s 4G LTE network. Which means, even where available, 5G isn’t part of the deal.
