Verizon Go Unlimited plan will include Canada and Mexico soon

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.

Thanks to this change, the only big difference remaining between Go Unlimited and Beyond Unlimited is consistently faster data (or what Verizon calls "premium" data).

Are you planning a jaunt to Canada or Mexico?

Both new and existing Go Unlimited customers will get free talk, text and data in Mexico and Canada, up to a limit of 500MB per day at LTE speeds.

Starting next week, users with either of Verizon's two unlimited plans can call and text to Mexico and Canada, as well as use data when visiting. You'll also get unlimited calling those countries from the United States.

Just don't expect unfettered access to high-speed data. After you eat through that, Verizon will throttle your connection to 2G speeds until the next day.

This feature mimics the way that worldwide travel is set up in Beyond Unlimited, the pricier of Verizon's three recent unlimited plan options among those available to individuals and families. That plan clocks in at $75/month versus Beyond Unlimited's $85/month price, though with restrictions, such as "dvd-quality" video streaming versus actual HD quality over mobile.

For anyone traveling to these countries for more than a day or two, TravelPass is an excessively expensive solution, especially considering the Beyond Unlimited plan or competing companies' plans. Beyond Unlimited costs $85, and for that sum, it ups streaming resolutions as listed above, and gives customers a 22GB cap before they get deprioritized.
