Just like Verizon's own prepaid Unlimited 4G data plan, the data is "non prioritized". It will slow down during times of network congestion, but It is not throttled in the traditional sense. For those of us who live in rural areas where Verizon's network is the only acceptable option, this is the cheapest prepaid deal I've heard of with unlimited 4g data. $69.95 monthly or $64 monthly with autopay.

Verizon's prepaid unlimited 4g plan is $80 plus tax, with or without autopay.

Do they still throttle you to 3mb? Good deal if they don't. If not just spend the extra $16 and get Verizon Prepaid unlimited.

I know they use to throttle the mvno's at 5mb down/ 2 up. Don't know with this plan. The branded Verizon Prepaid unlimited plan has no prioritization at all. I am currently using the $80 Verizon plan ($87 w/ tax). At peak use times, such as Friday afternoon, I only get 2-4mb download speed. I have gotten 50mb+ down late at night though, so on the other hand, no hard throttling limit. The upload speed is usually steady at 20mb+. Network deprioritization occurs with the Verizon unlimited prepaid plan during network congestion, but hasn't gotten so slow so far that I couldn't stream.

Verizon's own prepaid was never throttled, unlike the VZ MVNOs. However, just recently TracFone Confirms The End of 5 Mbps Throttling on the Verizon Network [prepaidphonenews.com]
The other VZ MVNOs will presumably follow suit in due time.

Only the 5 owned by Carlos Slim. The smaller ones don't have enough customer base to comply with the terms of big red. I shucked Page Plus after he acquired it several years ago. Closed the US call centers and outsourced it's entire customer support overseas.

"Fully Unlimited"

Yeah right. It's either throttled, deprioritized, or they shit can you after so much use. Can't believe a Carlos company is advertising this after they already paid a settlement on false advertising claims over "UNLIMITED" data.

Almost certainly not. It is not listed anywhere as a feature. The biggest clue is that the branded Verizon Prepaid Unlimited Plan doesn't support tethering so it makes one highly doubt a cheaper mvno plan would.

Not true today. Verizon Prepaid data is heavily deprioritized. In my area during peak/prime times it's so slow that it's practically worthless. "Throttled" and "Deprioritized" are interchangeable when the network is heavily congested as a lot of areas are today.

I'm not on PP anymore, but I noticed that if you did autopay directly through them they would charge taxes/fees. If you refill through a third party there are none. So that $64 probably bumps up around $70 FYI.

prepayrefill.com (they changed name to Megasaver, but web address is the same.) with code "HOWARD" at checkout should be cheaper than the autopay on PP.

sorry, but having a hard throttle and being deprioritized are not the same thing

They are effectively in my area, because it is heavily congested. As I said, during peak/prime time my Verizon Prepaid (native) data is practically worthless. Whether you call that a "throttle" or a "deprioritization" really makes no difference. I'm pointing it out because a lot of people don't realize that Verizon Prepaid data has been deprioritized so heavily. It's no longer "just as good" as postpaid data, nor is it at a premium to other Verizon MVNO data streams. You're stuck in the shit lane even on the native Prepaid service.

There are very stark differences between having an artificial throttle of a maximum of 5Mbp/s of which VZ placed on all the MVNOs vs being deprioritized. VZ prepaid never that hard throttle, which it placed on the MVNOs. You had a bad experience but being deprioritized should not have been happening 24/7
