    TravelPass requires More Everything, Verizon Plan or New Verizon Plan. They are doing everything they can to get people off of the GUDP - including not making TravelPass an option for you.

    Check out this link from reddit https://www.reddit.com/r/verizon/com...ressing_files/. Will everything be compressed or just video. It seems like Verizon is trying to cut corners everywhere since unlimited came out.

    I still want to know how they are going to do it you can't compress encrypted data and most traffic is encrypted anymore.

    I can't see how they can compress more than things like video (by limiting bandwidth, let the streaming provider drop to a lower quality), and maybe recompress jpg, etc, to a lower quality. They can't just arbitrarily compress normal HTML since the browser, for example, won't be expecting a compressed stream and know to uncompress it.
    iPhone X on ATT Prepaid. Backup iPhone 7+ on inexpensive Verizon MVNO plan. Hopefully covers me in the continental US for phone usage. Cheaper than a single unlimited plan on ATT or Verizon or T-Mobile.

    It appears that the 500MB limitation is just for people with the new Unlimited Plan. Ironic.

    Cellular One (AT&T), Sprint, Verizon, T-Mobile, back to Verizon

    The current FAQ for the plan doesn't differentiate anymore. When the unlimited plan first came out, they mentioned the 500MB/day limit for unlimited. Apparently they have since expanded it to all plans.

    TravelPass lets you use your domestic talk, text and data allowances while traveling outside the US in more than 100 countries for a low daily rate.

    Instead of paying per minute, per message, or per MB you'll be charged a flat rate with TravelPass. The daily rate is $5/day in Mexico and Canada and $10/day in other countries where TravelPass is available. You'll use your minutes, messages and data allowances from your domestic plan. 4G data speeds apply for the first 512 MB/day

    I don't think that's correct. I just got the following from the Verizon help virtual assistant:

    "Note: If you’re on the new Verizon Plan 12GB or higher (including Verizon Unlimited), TravelPass in Mexico and Canada are included in your plan at no additional charge. International data reduced to 2G speeds after 500MB/day on Verizon Unlimited." (I added the underlines.)

    Edit: Just got the following after a live chat--

    So my 24 GB plan would allow me to use the full 24 GB's at 4G speeds in Canada or Mexico? That was my understanding.

    That seems clear now, yes, assuming you can find areas in Mexico that have 4G... :-)

    So by the time it gets to the person updating the FAQ, some of the details were lost.

    I was international before unlimited was added back, and I wasn't limited by the 512MB/day. That limit would have hit me once or twice if I were to repeat the trip.

    I found telcell to have a lot of 4G LTE. Movistar or however you say it was awful. Crappy calls and almost non working data.

    I work global tech support, and can confirm the 500MB/day limit is for all TravelPass-eligible plans. The change was implemented on 04/25, the same day as the price increase for Canada and Mexico. 500MB at full speed for the TravelPass session, then downgrades to 2G speeds until the session expires. Plans that include Canada​ and Mexico restore speeds at midnight.

    Damn. When I get a chance, I will have to make a trip over to Port Huron, MI and manually connect onto Rogers and test the cap.

    Agreed. Telcell in Mexico has a lot of 4G LTE from my experience and works quite well. Movistar, not so much. When my phone switched to Movistar once or twice, I went into the Carrier settings and manually selected Telcell.

    With all due respect to your position, what you're saying contradicts other Verizon sources and just doesn't make sense. The only intentional limits, deprioritizations and similar actions by Verizon (and most other carriers) are only ever with respect to unlimited data plans. The chat person I spoke with took 15 minutes talking to higher level managers precisely regarding the recently announced changes to Travel Pass, and she said unequivocally that the 500MB speed reduction does NOT apply to the regular New Verizon Plan tiered data customers.
