Verizon Go Unlimited will soon include service in Mexico and Canada

Back in August, Verizon split its unlimited data plan into three separate plans - Go Unlimited, Beyond Unlimited, and Business Unlimited.

This feature mimics the way that global travel is set up in Beyond Unlimited, the pricier of Verizon's three recent unlimited plan options among those available to individuals and families. Now the company is adding a new feature to its cheaper plan, and travelers will be pleased. Starting on January 25th (next Thursday for the calendar impaired), Go Unlimited subscribers will be able to use their talk, text and data in Mexico and Canada. Still, it's nice if you are a frequent traveler to those countries from the U.S. and are signed up for Verizon's unlimited plans.

Are you planning a jaunt to Canada or Mexico? Naturally, the same restrictions inherent to the Go Unlimited plan still apply; video streaming is limited to 480p quality on phones or 720p on tablets, and if the network gets busy, you'll find yourself last in line for high speeds.

This change is a welcomed one, but hardly worth praising. If you're on Verizon's Go Unlimited plan, you won't have to worry about extra talk, text, and data charges during your trip. Verizon said that users' access to 4G LTE data in Mexico and Canada will be "capped at 500MB per day".

Go Unlimited typically costs $10-$20 less than Beyond Unlimited depending on how many lines you have, so it's nice to see one of these perks come to Verizon's more affordable unlimited option.

This feature was previously just for the more expensive Beyond Unlimited plan.
