The best phone plans for rideshare and delivery drivers and what goes into identifying them might surprise you. 

One thing you probably already know: As a driver, you need a good plan that won’t eat into your earnings. But there’s even more to the story, and in this article we’ll tell you everything we’ve discovered. 

We’ll discuss the main ingredients of great phone plans, and then share with you the most outstanding plans we’ve found. Here’s what we’ll cover:

  • What goes into the best phone plans for rideshare and delivery drivers?
  • What types of phone plan providers are available?
  • Bare bones or bells and whistles – which is best?
  • Our pick of the 8 best phone plans for drivers 

What goes into the best phone plans for rideshare and delivery drivers?

It’s hard to find drivers who never complain about their phone plans or services. No plan we know of is perfect. When you’re choosing a plan, you truly have to ask yourself some pointed questions and make decisions according to what works best for you. Let’s start with some of those soul-searching queries.

Data: How much do you really need?

Before you even start to compare plans, it pays to know what you, as a driver, need in a phone plan. You might be under the impression that those fancy apps are all data hogs that use up a whole pile of gigabytes in the course of a month. 

But they really don’t. Uber tells drivers they can expect to use about 3 GB of data in a month, estimating that a driver is on the app for about 50 hours a week. Still, the company recommends that drivers get unlimited data plans. 

You might indeed need an unlimited plan, particularly if you’ll be using the plan for more than just driving. You wouldn’t want to stream movies to watch while you’re in between trips, only to find you’ve used up all your data and have to deal with the consequences. And yes, these consequences will definitely affect the performance of your driving and navigation apps.

When you exceed the amount of data that’s allotted to you (anywhere from 22, to 50, or even 100GB for some unlimited data plans), the carrier will slow down your data speeds. You figure you won’t have a problem if you go back to 4G or 3G? Maybe so; but that’s not what happens. They take you all the way down to 2G unless you purchase more data for the month, and that can get pricey. The 2G speeds are glacial; you won’t want to be navigating unfamiliar streets or highways with a connection that’s about as useful as two cans tied together with a string. (Okay, slight exaggeration there.)

If you’re someone who doesn’t use your driving phone for anything else, this wouldn’t be much of a worry. Many drivers find it convenient to have a separate phone just for use with their driving and delivery apps. 

This changes the need for you to absolutely have an unlimited data plan. You’ll want to look at the plans we list with an eye toward whether you choose to have an “everything phone” or one that’s dedicated to your driving and delivery gigs.

Coverage: Don’t go too far without it

You’ll definitely want to be attentive about this. Without good coverage, you could find yourself on your way to a passenger with no bars to show you how to get to the pickup point. Or, you might have a delicious delivery waiting to be received at a location that’s too remote for your cellular coverage to handle.

Coverage differs depending on where you live and what service you choose. When considering a plan, make sure to look closely at the coverage map. Is the service available in all the areas where you drive? If not, you’ll need to find one that provides you with wider coverage.

Cost: The bottom line always matters

When it comes to choosing the best phone plan for your driving gig, you surely won’t want the monthly bill to eat into your profits. That’s where making your choice can get really tricky. 

Every data plan has a set cost, but there are hidden costs as well as (sometimes) hidden savings. For instance, do you already have a phone? If not, you’ll want to compare how much it would cost to buy one versus the cost of using one that’s included with your phone plan.

Getting a phone for cheap is a hidden benefit we can all love. But remember that the providers’ claims, particularly when they involve free equipment, can be seductive. So be sure to be on the lookout for concealed costs. 

One example is roaming charges, although these days such charges apply mostly to international usage. If you’re using one phone for everything, and you take occasional trips outside the U.S., you’ll need to check on this.

Plans could also advertise very low-priced data offerings, with fine print saying that costs go up whenever you exceed your limit. The other price-related snag is associated with contracts. Some plans might advertise a price of $30 per month, but it only applies if you have a two-year contract with the provider. If you don’t, you might be charged $40, $50, or more each month, rather than the $30 you hoped for. 

You’ll be able to compare the costs of various phone plans when you examine them closely. Here, we’re giving you an idea of the factors and features that matter most.

Family-friendliness: How many people can use the phone plan, and does it affect cost?

If you have more than one person in your household with a cell phone, you might want to evaluate how purchasing a family plan affects your costs. Chances are you’ll get cheaper per-person rates with a family plan; but you’ll also have to check into whether the data is shared or is allocated for each person. 

If the data is shared, look closely at how much other family members use on a monthly basis, and whether the plan you’re thinking about is going to offer enough support. If it’s allocated on an individual basis, it’s easier to account for how much data each family member is going through each month.

You might also want to look at whether a company is providing phone equipment for all users in your family plan. Be sure to include any cost savings in your calculations as you make your decision about the best phone plan for you.

What types of phone plan providers are available?

Not everyone knows there are different types of phone plan providers. It’s not always easy to see unless you’re paying close attention. 

The first kind is an actual cellular carrier. These companies are the most widely known: AT&T, T-Mobile (which merged with Sprint in 2020), and Verizon are the Big Three. These companies own and operate their own cellular networks. They put up the cell towers and repeaters that allow your phone to communicate with the network.

The other kind of provider is a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO). This type of company sells its data at cheaper prices than the major carriers because it doesn’t have the huge costs associated with building and maintaining its own network. 

MVNOs purchase large segments of bandwidth from the carriers at discounted prices. Then, they repackage and resell the phone plans at lower prices than the major carriers. Although buying your phone plan from an MVNO could make sense, it’s always wise to learn about the details of the plan.

MVNO phone service providers aren’t bound by the same restrictions as the major carriers, which can become an issue with portability. For example, they might claim that you can take your number anywhere, and then use tactics—like extending the contract a certain amount of time before you’re eligible to take your number with you—to keep you paying them longer.

Major carriers, under the law, are required to allow customers to take their numbers wherever they choose, but they also have higher prices and restrictive contracts. Again, it comes down to your needs and whether you want one phone for all your uses or a separate device for driving.

If you choose to sign on with an MVNO, you’ll also want to know from which network they purchase the service they’ll be reselling to you. This article on the Best MVNO website lists major MVNOs and the carriers they use. 

Another consideration about MVNOs: Even though your plan uses a major network, you can’t count on getting the same service that’s available to the network’s direct customers. When there are a lot of users on the network in the same place, such as a crowded city, your MVNO plan will be deprioritized.

That means you won’t have as strong of a signal as direct customers, and in some cases you might have no service at all. Be sure to consider this, and if you have the chance, try a short-term plan and test out what service in your area is like on the MVNO of your choice.

Because this, and all information about phone plans, changes nearly every day, we recommend you always verify what you’re being told by the companies you’re comparing. You can read these and other reviews, and definitely should scrutinize the fine print in plan offerings before you sign any contract.

Bare bones or bells and whistles – which is best?

Decisions, decisions…

Phone plans for rideshare and delivery drivers vary from company to company, from plan to plan, and from place to place. We’ve given you some ideas of what to look for, but another important consideration is whether you want the basics or the deluxe version.

As we said, this will depend on whether you dedicate your phone to driving, as well as how secure you might feel with a bare bones plan when you also need reliability and portability. Things can get pretty hairy when you discover your plan’s coverage is lame, and when you want to change plans, you can’t take your number with you.

Bare bones plans are good if you know you can depend on the company and you don’t need a lot of data. Less elaborate plans could fail you when your needs change … such as finding yourself on more Zoom meetings. 

Group meetings on Zoom can consume as much as 2.4GB per hour. That’s almost as much as your rideshare or delivery app would use in a whole month.

Yet even with high-end plans, it’s easy to make expensive mistakes—such as paying $75 or more each month for unlimited data when you don’t really need it. The other pitfall is coverage. Different carriers have better coverage in various parts of the country, so remember to always check that coverage map.

And… what about 5G? Do you really need it? Again, it depends on whether you’re using your phone exclusively for driving as opposed to one you hope will take care of all your communication needs. There is no way that 5G is a necessity for driving apps at the moment; but if you want it to stream with speed and keep up with the cutting edge (and you have a phone that handles 5G), then you might want to consider it.

For both bare bones and deluxe phone plans, be sure to read the fine print on any contract. While some plans are flexible, others will keep you tied to them for a very long time. The price you might have to pay for breaking a contract before it expires can be shocking.

Now let’s review what we’ve picked as the eight best phone plans for rideshare and delivery drivers are. These are not in order of importance; rather, they’re organized alphabetically.

The 8 best phone plans for drivers 

We’ve done our best to summarize these plans for you. Keep in mind there are deals on plans, phones, and all the other devices you might want to connect to your service, and they change literally every day. We encourage you to click on the company names to learn more about changes in services, prices, and devices offered by each.

AT&T

First of all, you can rest assured that no one is paying us to recommend this or any company.

And yes, we know that AT&T is not cheap. But we also know it’s reliable and has great coverage in most places. It also has some great unlimited data plans that are flexible and family-friendly. All that is good, but probably the best thing about AT&T is that the company has everything you could ever want. 

This page from the AT&T website shows you all the features of the company’s high-end plans. The top-of-the-line package, AT&T Unlimited Elite, includes the following:

  • Unlimited talk, text, data, plus 100GB of Premium Data
    (After 100GB, AT&T may temporarily slow data speeds if the network is busy.)
  • 5G access included
  • Unlimited talk, text, and data in Mexico and Canada (2G off-net data speeds may apply)
  • Unlimited texting from the U.S. to 120+ countries 
  • Advanced Mobile Security
  • Spam and fraud call blocking, caller ID, and identity monitoring
  • High-definition streaming available
  • 30GB hotspot data per line per month
  • HBO Max™ included
  • Savings of up to $10/month per line if you’re affiliated with a qualifying workplace, school, or organization

Other AT&T offerings include a hotspot for your car, connections through your watch or tablet, and a car diagnostics service. All these charges are extra, but if they appeal to you, AT&T has them readily available. 

Discount programs are available for military service members, first responders, teachers, nurses, and physicians. That’s the good news.

The not-so-favorable thing about AT&T is its prices. They vary depending on the number of lines you have, but in all cases, the company’s services are quite expensive. Prices for this high-end plan range from $45 per month for five lines, to $85 per month for just one line.

It’s possible to get plans that don’t have every last bell and whistle. For example, the Unlimited Starter program includes all the features except the hotspot, HBO Max™, and HD streaming. The security package is also slightly less comprehensive. This plan ranges from $30 per month per line for five users to $65 per month for a single line.

AT&T also has reasonably priced prepaid plans with only a few features. You’ll get 8G of data, high-speed streaming, unlimited texting, some security features, and the ability to roll over your data usage from one month to the next. This link gives you all the details, including the full range of features available. You’ll notice that you can get a plan for as little as $25 per month, but that price is available only if you prepay $300 for a full year in advance. 

You can get discounts on phones, and you can also get a trade-in deal. It’s rare, however, for AT&T to provide a free phone as part of the service.

In general, while we acknowledge that AT&T is very expensive, its range of plans and solid reliability make it one of the best providers available.

Google Fi

Leave it to Google to come up with a plan that’s flexible and reasonably priced, while also providing excellent service. As an MVNO, Google Fi leases cellular service from other companies: T-Mobile (which merged with Sprint in 2020), and US Cellular. Using these high-quality networks in combination allows Google Fi to give users superior cell service in most locations.

What makes this plan particularly unique is its flexibility. There are no contracts involved. You sign up online and pay monthly for only the data you use, and you can connect multiple lines, and manage them with security features. Families and small businesses can also set data budgets.

The prices are attractive too. Plans range from $20 per month for a single line to $70 for unlimited data. 

The top-shelf program includes

  • Unlimited data (high-speed data up to 22GB, slower (2G) after. Video streams at 480p)
  • Full-speed hotspot tethering
  • Free calls to 50+ countries
  • Free data and texts abroad
  • Google One membership (100GB cloud storage for each member)
  • Unlimited calls and texts
  • Low rates for calls while traveling out of the country

Google Fi also offers VPN and spam protection, and family features at no extra cost.

The flexible plan, which offers pay-as-you-go data rates, includes most of what the unlimited plan has, except there are charges for international calls and data and texts while traveling abroad, Also, you must pay for your data at the rate of $10 per GB.

Although a single line costs $20 per month, the price goes down to $16–$17 for three or more lines. As a driver using Fi with a single line, you’d pay a minimum of $20 per month, plus $30 for 3 GB of data for driving. That’s $50 per month, total.

Google Fi’s flexible plan is an excellent choice for a dedicated driving phone, and you would also be well-served with the unlimited data plan if you use it for all your communication services.

You can bring your own phone to Google Fi, or take advantage of the available discounts on compatible models. You can also lease a phone for $15 per month, should you want to try one out before making the commitment to buy one.

Remember also that Google Fi is a month-to-month deal. If you try it and don’t like it, you can always stop using it without any penalty.

Mint

By now, you’re probably ready to hear about a plan that doesn’t make your head spin, and we’ve got one for you—Mint. Simplicity isn’t the only thing that’s good about this company, but it’s one that truly stands out.

Mint offers super-cheap plans that are easy to understand. It’s an MVNO that uses T-Mobile’s network. Although T-Mobile is extremely well-known and reliable, as an MVNO customer, you risk having your network access deprioritized when the network is tapped heavily.

If you’re willing to take that chance, you’ll be rewarded with super-low prices. Plans start with three-month commitments that cost $15 for a 4GB plan, $20 per month for 10GB, $25 for 15GB, and $30 for unlimited. Mint unlimited customers who use less than 35GB per month will receive full-speed data. Upon reaching that limit, it will be slowed down.

Another consideration with Mint is that you must have an unlocked phone, so the phone you’re using now might not work. Also, the company doesn’t offer family plans. On the upside, you can bring your number along, and take it with you if you leave.

All Mint plans include:

  • Unlimited talk and text
  • Nationwide coverage
  • 5G or 4G LTE, whichever is strongest
  • Free calls to Mexico and Canada
  • Free 3-in-1 SIM card
  • Hotspot

Mint’s longer-term plans offer deeper discounts, from $15 per month for 4GB to $30 per month for unlimited data. Overall, Mint represents a great value. Whether it’s the right service depends on issues such as reliability, and whether you’ll need to look at getting a new phone. Mint offers good deals on phones if you decide to go that route. 

Straight Talk

Straight Talk’s pitch lives up to its name. The company tells you that you can keep your phone, keep your number, and forget about keeping a contract. This is a prepaid service that’s also an MVNO, and they use Verizon’s network as well as others, where needed. As with other MVNOs, deprioritization and tricky fine print apply to Straight Talk. Still, its positive points make it well worth your consideration.

Straight Talk offers multi-line as well as single-line plans. You can get a basic 5GB plan ranging from $35 per month for one month to a 25MB plan for a little over $40 for a full year. The more time you commit, the less you pay…but with Straight Talk, you must pay up-front. While this isn’t technically a contract, it does require you to stay with them for the time period for which you pay.

You can start with a shorter time period and upgrade after it expires, which is a good thing. If you choose to use the auto-refill option, you can save $1 per month. Not a huge deal, but it’s some incentive.

The basic plan offers:

  • Unlimited nationwide talk and text
  • Unlimited data with the first 5GB at high speeds, then at 2G*

The mid-range plan, at $55 per month or $50 for three months includes:

  • 10GB Hotspot data
  • Video typically streams at DVD quality
  • At 60GB, Straight Talk will review your account for usage

Straight Talk’s premium plan, the Platinum Unlimited Nationwide Talk and Text, costs $65 per month, and includes all the basics plus:

  • Mobile Protectprotection for spills, cracked screens, mechanical, and electrical failures
  • 20GB hotspot data (text HOTSPOT to 611611 to check compatibility)
  • 100GB cloud storage (for the duration of your plan, and available for 45 days for download only after end of agreement)
  • HD video streaming (720P)
  • International calling (unlimited mobile-to-mobile to Mexico, China, Canada, and India phone numbers, up to 15 unique destination numbers per service month)
  • At 60GB Straight Talk will review your account for usage

There are more plans in the middle range, so be sure to check out the Straight Talk website to get all the options. You can get phones through Straight Talk, or bring your own as long as it’s unlocked. You can even get one on a lease-to-own program. 

Straight Talk definitely has a lot of features for a very low price, but as you can see, you’ll have to sign up for longer terms in order to get the best discounts. We wonder how this equals “no contract,” but that’s less important than emphasizing that this is a good deal for drivers, especially if you make international calls.

As with most MVNOs, we recommend you try the one-month plan, and then decide if the service is adequate for your driving and delivery needs. If it is, you can then consider taking advantage of the longer-term plans with greater discounts. This is a good deal for drivers, provided that service in your area is reliable enough to support your driving and delivery needs.

T-Mobile

The first thing we’d like to tell you about T-Mobile is that it’s grown a lot, thanks to the 2020 merger with Sprint. T-Mobile is a stand-alone network, like AT&T and Verizon, meaning it builds and maintains its own network. In fact, T-Mobile lays claim to “the nation’s largest and fastest 5G network.” If 5G is important to you, then you might want to look at the plans T-Mobile has to offer.

Besides speed, T-Mobile rates high for low prices, offering three tiers of unlimited plans:

Essentials: $60 per month with auto-pay

  • Unlimited talk, text, and data (up to 50GB per month before slowing speed)
  • Unlimited talk and text from the US, Canada, and Mexico
  • Unlimited messages (domestic and international)
  • Low flat-rate international calls ($0.25 per minute)
  • Unlimited video streaming

With the Essentials Family Plan you can add another line for $30, and any additional lines for $15 per month.

There is one downside you should know about, though. 

Essentials customers will be the first to notice slower speeds when the network is congested, even before the 50GB monthly limit is reached.

Magenta: $70 per month with auto-pay

What’s this, a special for Lyft drivers? Not really, but it’s a sweet deal. You get all the features of the Essentials plan, plus:

  • Unlimited international calling for a $15 per-month fee
  • Unlimited data (4G LTE) up to 100GB in the US and 5GB in Mexico and Canada
  • Unlimited video streaming at no extra charge in the T-Mobile app
  • Basic 1-screen Netflix subscription included if you have two or more lines.
  • 5GB of 4G LTE hotspot data
  • No credit check, if you bring your own phone and pay upfront
  • No contract

Magenta Max: $85 per month with auto-pay (taxes and fees included)

More things for Lyft drivers to cheer for! A plan that matches their brand with tons of bells and whistles. It’s a no-contract plan, and included coverage in The US, Mexico, and Canada – but all primary usage has to occur on the US network.

In addition to this, you’ll get

  • 5G coverage
  • Unlimited talk, text, and data
  • Unlimited international data at twice the speed (4G LTE data up to 5 GB, then unlimited 2G)
  • Unlimited 4K UHD video streaming
  • Unlimited calling from the US to landlines in 70+ countries, discounts to 200+ countries ($15 extra per month)
  • Unlimited airplane WiFi on US-based flights
  • Free Netflix subscription for each line
  • 40GB mobile hotspot data
  • Family plans range from two lines for $70 per month per line; additional line $30 a month with auto-pay
  • Bring your own unlocked phone, purchase one upfront, or lease to buy
  • Protection available for extra charge
  • Age 55+, military, and first-responder discounts
  • Bonus incentive for moving over from AT&T or Verizon

As you can see, T-Mobile has plenty of bells and whistles as well as reasonably priced plans. You should, as always, check the coverage map and try out the service before making a long-term commitment; but for the most part, T-Mobile customers seem to be pretty happy. Most importantly, all the plans give drivers whatever they could possibly need, and more.

T-Mobile has various offers for phones. Many discounts are tied into the plans, so do an exhaustive search through the phones and the plans to get the very best deal possible.

Verizon

Like AT&T and T-Mobile, Verizon operates on its own network and has a wide variety of plans and phones that will keep you busy shopping for a long time. Verizon is not exactly cheap but does offer some affordable plans. The company has a 5G network, a very good reputation, and its most valuable attribute: coverage

Verizon has the kind of network availability that almost never leaves you with less than a signal bar or two. The company also touts the fastest and most comprehensive 5G coverage in the world.

The drawback? Verizon is probably the most expensive carrier of them all. Its unlimited plans start at $70 per month for one line, and can be as low as $30 per line if you have five lines. On the high end, you’ll pay $90 per month for one line, and $50 per line per month for five lines. If you have two or more lines, family-friendly features such as device tracking and parental controls are available.

Verizon offers discounts for seniors, military, nurses, teachers, and first responders.

There are four tiers of unlimited plans, and each includes unlimited talk and text within the US, talk, and text to US and Mexico, plus data and roaming. The number in parentheses after each plan shows the usage after which “unlimited” data can be slowed down.

Here are Verizon’s four unlimited plans:

Start Unlimited (22GB) – $45 for one line

  • 5G Nationwide
  • 480P video streaming (data may be slowed when network is congested)
  • 4G LTE
  • International texting
  • Free six months subscriptions to Disney, Apple, and Discovery

Play More Unlimited (50GB) – $55 for one line

  • 5G total access
  • 5G Nationwide
  • 4G LTE
  • Premium network access (50GB before slowing data)
  • Unlimited mobile hotspot, 15GB of 5G
  • Disney, ESPN, Hulu included
  • Free six months subscription to Apple Music
  • Free twelve months subscription to Discovery+

Do More Unlimited (50GB) – $55 for one line

  • 5G total access
  • 5G Nationwide
  • 4G LTE
  • Premium network access (50GB before slowing data)
  • Unlimited mobile hotspot, 15GB of 5G
  • Free six months’ subscription to Disney, Apple Music, and Discovery+
  • 50% off unlimited connected device plan ($15 per month value)
  • 600GB cloud storage

Get More Unlimited (50GB) – $65 for one line

  • 5G total access
  • 5G Nationwide
  • 4G LTE
  • Premium network access (50GB before slowing data)
  • Unlimited mobile hotspot, 30GB of 5G
  • Disney, Hulu, ESPN, and Apple Music included
  • Free twelve months subscription to Discovery+
  • 50% off unlimited connected device plan ($15 per month value)
  • 600GB cloud storage

Don’t shy away from Verizon because you think they have more than you could ever use. There are also prepaid plans available for as little as $35 per month for 5GB if you pay for one to three months at a time. Looking further ahead, it would be $30 for four to nine months, and $25 for 10 months or more. 

Remember that Verizon is all about reliability and variety. The company actually has more to offer than AT&T, and also has a huge variety of phones available. Drivers can use the basic prepaid plan or go all the way up to a full-fledged family plan with everything you can imagine. According to this December 2020 article, many reviewers identify Verizon as the highest-quality service you can buy. Your preferences will determine whether it’s the right one for you.

Gridwise Connect on Visible

Gridwise Connect on Visible brings you an affordable phone plan that only costs you $25/month! Visible is an MVNO powered by Verizon. This speaks to its general reliability, but it also will slow down first when the network is congested in a given location. Still, it’s a very good plan for drivers because you get a lot of service for less money. There’s a referral plan, in which your bill goes down to $5 for one month for each friend you convince to use Gridwise Connect on Visible; and you can bring your own phone or buy a new one.

There is one basic Visible plan, and here’s what it includes:

  • Unlimited calling, data, messaging
  • Calls to Mexico and Canada included
  • No data limits on hotspots 

The cost is $40 per month unless you join Gridwise Connect on Visible. This lets you join our party (of at least four people), and then you all save. The cost for this option is $25 per month per person.

Gridwise Connect on Visible is super-simple to understand, and not that expensive. The fact that it uses Verizon’s network is a real plus, too. The downside, of course, is the deprioritization when it comes to that network. But with Gridwise Connect on Visible, when you’re getting full speed, your data won’t be throttled, no matter how much you use in the monthly billing period.

Many reviewers say Visible is the best prepaid phone plan of them all, and we tend to agree. It offers high-quality service for a low price, particularly when the Gridwise Connect on Visible party plan is taken into consideration. Next time you’re hanging out with drivers at an airport cell lot, refer them to Gridwise and the Gridwise Connect on Visible party plan to get great service for 25 bucks a month.

Xfinity

Xfinity is an MVNO that also runs on Verizon’s network, and includes 5G service. It’s available only to those who use Xfinity’s cable and internet services in their homes. 

The company’s plans are simple and very reasonably priced. Two types are offered: By the Gig and Unlimited. For both plans, unlimited calling and texting to Canada and Mexico are available for an additional charge of $10 per month.

The By the Gig plans allow users to share data across as many as 10 lines, and there is no data rollover. 

Xfinity’s prices are:

  • 1GB for $15 per month
  • 3GB for $30 per month
  • 10GB for $60 per month

The By the Gig Plans include:

  • Shared data on all By the Gig lines on your account
  • 4G LTE coverage and 5G access where it is available
  • High-definition streaming (720p on phones, 1080p on tablets)
  • 4G LTE personal hotspots
  • Higher quality cellular service in times of high network traffic
  • Availability of LTE data saver

The price for the Unlimited plan is $45 per line per month. After 20GB of data use, speed is reduced.  

Here is a summary of Xfinity’s Unlimited plan features:

  • Available on phone or tablet
  • 4G LTE data and 5G access where available
  • Personal hotspots included (600 kbps)
  • SD LTE streaming (480p)
  • HD Pass available for higher quality cellular service in times with high network traffic

It’s possible to switch from a By the Gig plan to Unlimited within a billing cycle, and from an Unlimited plan to a By the Gig plan at the start of the next billing cycle. There is no contract, and you can stop using Xfinity wireless at the end of any monthly billing period, without penalty. You can bring your own unlocked phone or buy a phone through Xfinity.

If you’re already an Xfinity customer at home, you might want to look into Xfinity phone plans, especially if 5G is important to you. While you don’t need it for driving, if you want to bring your phone up to the cutting edge, Xfinity offers a very reasonably priced way to do that.
