The notable changes affect the carrier's two top-end plans.

Additionally, customers can have up to 10 lines on their account instead of five.

Today, Verizon has announced some changes that its making to its prepaid tier of plans.

And that's not all, as Verizon is also introducing a new 8GB plan for $45 with the Auto Pay discount (taking the place of its 7GB for $50 plan), and is slashing its 3GB plan from $40 to $35 with the discount.


Additional features include 5GB of international tethering in a "Simple Global" country, unlimited voice calls between these countries at no cost, unlimited messaging, unlimited stateside international talk and text (normally priced at $15 per month alone), and all of the features of the One Plus International add-on that was ended earlier this year.

Similarly, Big Red dropped its original unlimited plan from $75 down to just $65/month, which offers unlimited talk, text and LTE data. The new offering is through T-Mobile Prepaid, not Metro by T-Mobile, and it'll only be available for a limited time. All plans also include unlimited talk and texts to over 200 destinations. Verizons plans do include unlimited talk and text to over 200 worldwide destinations though.

As well, T-Mobile lists the limited-time prepaid unlimited plan as only for domestic use, and there's a possibility that the customer will be temporarily throttled during congested time periods. The carrier says "video typically streams at 480p", offering no further clarification on its prepaid page.

You can find this on the T-Mobile prepaid website.
