    Verizon to offer new Apple One Plan

    https://www.macrumors.com/2022/09/02...ple-one-plans/


    "Verizon plans to become the first U.S. carrier to include Apple One as a free perk with an eligible plan alongside the launch of iPhone 14 models later this month, according to information obtained by MacRumors from a carrier source.

    Apple One will likely be included with Verizon's most expensive "5G Get More" unlimited data plan, which costs $90 per month for one person. The fully-loaded plan already includes Apple Music, the option of Apple Arcade or Google Play Pass, Disney+, Hulu, ESPN+, 600GB of Verizon Cloud storage, and more as free perks. It's unclear if existing subscribers will receive Apple One or if the offer will be for new customers only.

    Following in the footsteps of British carrier EE, Verizon will likely offer Apple One's individual tier, which normally costs $14.95 per month and includes Apple Music, Apple Arcade, Apple TV+, and iCloud+ with 50GB of storage.

    It's unclear exactly when Verizon plans to share this news, but the carrier will likely make an announcement at some point in September alongside Apple's introduction of iPhone 14 models. Apple is widely expected to unveil the iPhone 14, Apple Watch Series 8, and more during an event at Steve Jobs Theater on September 7, and the devices should go on sale by September 16 in the U.S. and many other countries.

    Verizon offering Apple One with an eligible plan could help to attract customers to the carrier heading into the holiday shopping season. The deal could also further bolster Apple's services business, which set a June quarter record with $19.6 billion revenue and was the company's second largest revenue source behind iPhone sales."

    It’s such a bad deal. No option to upgrade to Apple One Premier, no mix & match, and half the hotspot data. Ew.

    I agree Vivian. Every one keeps saying they need some quality cheaper plans. But they keep releasing these $90 plans.

    Verizon needs FEWER plans not more. Verizon is going to wait until it stock is down to $20 before they realize LOWERING prices can actually make them MORE money. What you get for what you pay is not worth it. Also not everyone wants these perks. I bet if you offered a perk free plan that was $10 per line cheaper many people would take it.

    I would try prepaid, it’s a great option to not have to pay for a bunch of garbage you’ll never use.

    cable is a good example of that look all the channels people pay for that they do not watch.

    Hans really needs to go. Even an uneducated person would say lower prices would stop the bleeding.

    You know, the funny thing is that the playbook already exists. AT&T has their unlimited postpaid structured into three simple tiers that just about anybody can understand.

    The problem I see with Verizon's postpaid plans is that they're complicated. A lot of the offerings are limited-time trials. For the average consumer, choosing between Do More and Play More is complicated because they're equal in some areas, but not in others. While Get More still foregoes a number of premium Verizon features like "premium" streaming and Call Filter Plus; the AT&T and T-Mobile equivalents of those features are included in their highest tier plans.

    They really should just try to match AT&T in a few key areas:

    • Honor corporate discounts on unlimited plans (akin to AT&T FAN/Signature Discount)
    • Offer better (read: more competitive) international roaming options than a 500MB/day TravelPass -- perhaps even just bump it up to 1-2 GB/day
    • Include "premium" streaming for free with Play More and Get More plans
    • Throw in Call Filter Plus on Get More for free (AT&T Unlimited Elite/Premium includes free CNAM dips)
    • Move Get More to QCI7 (again, similar to Unlimited Elite/Premium)
    • Drop the deprioritization on hotspot when non-UWB handset data exceeds 50 GB/mo (a very arcane limitation that no consumer should ever have to think about)

    The Verizon Wireless CEO Hans Vestberg needs to go since he has made it clear he is going to keep on doubling down instead of course correcting when his plan of premium only customers has failed. This is just another gimmick that will not attract customers over to Verizon Wireless instead of lowering pricing and making changes to improve their services including customer service. That does not even include the fact that Verizon has the worst trade in promotion of all the carriers for the iPhone 14 at $800.00 dollars while AT&T/T Mobile are offering $1,000.00 dollars. How many more customers is that going to cost Verizon since I do not believe those number will be on Q3?

    Verizon should just merge Do and Play More.

    Not sure hat this mean. Are you talking about the 600 kbps limit? ALL three do this. At&t is the worst as it's 128 kbps. All 3 carriers should be offering 3 Mbps minimum. And Verizon should be offering 10 Mbps in UW areas

    I'm referring to this fine print below where using 25 GB of data on Play/Do More or 50 GB on Get More through your smartphone will throttle hotspot data. UWB is "unlimited" without deprioritization or a hard limit through the smartphone; but from what I've read here and elsewhere it appears that all data usage, including that from your smartphone, counts toward this hotspot limit.

    AT&T basically keeps your smartphone usage separate from hotspot, and even if you exceed your Unlimited Starter/Extra priority data on your phone, your hotspot allotment is metered separately.

    Mobile hotspot speeds reduced to speeds up to 3 Mbps when on 5G Ultra Wideband and 600 Kbps when on 5G Nationwide / 4G LTE for the rest of your monthly billing cycle (only after 25 GB/mo 5G Ultra Wideband, 5G Nationwide, or 4G LTE hotspot data on 5G Play More, 5G Do More, and One Unlimited for iPhone unlimited plans, and after 50 GB/mo of 5G Ultra Wideband, 5G Nationwide, or 4G LTE hotspot data on the 5G Get More unlimited plan).
