Verizon’s network is top of the line — and that performance comes at a price. Sprint and T-Mobile often beat Verizon on price, including on the unlimited data front.

Verizon family cell phone plans

Verizon’s family plans range in size from 2 gigabytes to unlimited data, and you can have up to 10 devices connected to one plan.

Pricing for regular plans includes two parts: a monthly charge for the data package — what Verizon advertises — and a $20 monthly device access fee for each phone connected to the plan.

Below are the prices for two lines on Verizon’s Small, Medium and Large plans.

  • Small (2GB): $75
  • Medium (4GB): $90
  • Large (8GB): $110
