Imagine a world where you are never disconnected. A world where you can stream movies and TV shows without buffering, download files in seconds, and play online games without lag. A world where you can work from anywhere, stay connected with friends and family, and access the latest information no matter where you are.
Such a world is now our reality.
We have unlocked the world of unlimited 5G phone service. The question is, are you willing to step into it? Spectrum Mobile Unlimited and Unlimited Plus plans are promising non-stop, low-cost 5G wireless connectivity throughout the USA. So, let’s join hands as we explore the endless possibilities of newer, faster, and cheaper cellphone service.
Spectrum Mobile Unlimited is a mid-tier phone plan offered exclusively to Spectrum Internet® customers. The wireless phone plan costs $29.99 per month for each line and includes unlimited 4G data, calls, and texts to any network within the country. Using Verizon’s nationwide cellular long-term evolution (LTE) towers, Spectrum Mobile™ offers its customers non-stop 4G and 5G data service across the country. The Spectrum Mobile Unlimited plan comes with 20 GB of mid-band 5G phone data where the upload and download speeds can be as high as 1,000 Mbps (1 Gbps).
Subscribers of the Spectrum Mobile Unlimited plan can enjoy no-contract service. They are not required to sign an annual term agreement and can downgrade their service to the Spectrum By-the-Gig plan or upgrade to the Spectrum Mobile Unlimited Plus plan anytime. The affordable unlimited mobile phone service also includes international minutes, texts, and roaming. You can send free texts to over 200 countries and stay in touch with family and friends in Canada and Mexico via calls (free 2,000 minutes). Spectrum Mobile™ international roaming starts as low as $0.02 per minute to give you a chance to share your fun-filled adventures with your loved ones as you move from one expedition to the next.
Customers can add up to 10 lines on a primary Spectrum Mobile™ account and share high-speed data via hotspot. Please note that the video streaming quality will be automatically reduced to 480p to help you conserve 5G data and make it last through the month. Like most mobile virtual network operators (MVNOs) Spectrum Mobile™ too has to cope with data deprioritization. It means that during peak hours, Verizon’s customers are given preference and continue to get data at 5G speeds, while Spectrum Mobile™ customers’ mobile data speeds are reduced to 1 Mbps. Speed reductions also occur after Spectrum Mobile Unlimited plan subscribers use up all the 20 GB of 5G data allotted to them in a month.
Spectrum Mobile Unlimited is an ideal value-added cellphone plan for individuals with moderate to high data consumption. It ensures endless video, voice, and chat-based connectivity in the USA and around the world.
No one can deny that the benefits of the Spectrum Mobile Unlimited plan outweigh its drawbacks. But for some, these minor inconveniences accompanying the Spectrum Mobile plans may be a deal breaker, causing a permanent souring of the relationship.
Take a look at the pros and cons of Spectrum Mobile Unlimited plan to decide whether or not it is the right phone plan for you.

Once users surpass their monthly full-speed mobile data allowance, their download speeds are reduced to 1 Mbps, and the cap on upload speed is lowered to 512 Kbps.

Subscribers of Spectrum’s unlimited mobile plan can share data with others or connect multiple devices to the network through hotspot tethering. They can share up to 5 GB of premium data, but after hitting this cap, the data is shared at reduced speeds of 600 Kbps.

Spectrum Mobile Unlimited Plus plan costs $55 per month for a single-line connection. But when you add two or more lines to your account, the price depreciates to $39.99 per month for each line. Spectrum Mobile™ customers can add up to 10 friends and family numbers to their account to enjoy monthly discounts, free calls and texts, and data sharing of up to 5 GB per line via hotspot tethering.
Unlimited Plus subscribers get 30 GB of full-speed mobile data in each billing cycle. But once these limits are exceeded, the download speed is reduced to 1 Mbps, and the upload speed is slowed down to 512 Kbps (0.512 Mbps).
Netflix recommends an internet speed of at least 3 Mbps to stream its content without buffering. But unless you use mobile data to make hours-long video calls, stream HD and UHD content, share high-resolution images, and download large files every day, the 30 GB data cap is more than sufficient for 5G data connectivity on the road.
To give you a little perspective, here is what you can do with 30 GB of Spectrum Mobile Unlimited Plus data.
|Activity||Time Duration with 30 GB|
|Browse the Internet||500 hours|
|Listen to music on Spotify||2,777 hours (24 Kbps)|
|Watching Netflix in SD quality||30 hours|
|Watching Netflix in HD quality||10 hours|

With its unlimited calling, texting, and internet access, Spectrum Mobile Unlimited Plus plan has proven that boundless wireless connectivity is more real and possible than we imagine it to be.
Spectrum Mobile Unlimited Plus plan uses ultra-wideband radio frequencies to deliver supremely fast 5G mobile data service in 11 percent of the USA. The download speeds on ultra-wideband 5G networks can reach up to 10 Gbps (10,000 Mbps). But since this technology is relatively new, Verizon needs time and capital to construct a vast network of ultra-wideband 5G towers across the country. At the moment, the service is restricted to the metro areas in 5 states.
The following are the 5 best states for Spectrum Mobile’s™ Unlimited Plus, 5G ultra-wideband network coverage.
|Top 5 States for Spectrum Mobile’s 5G Ultra-Wideband Network Coverage|
|Delaware||Maryland||New Jersey||North Carolina||Ohio|
When customers take their Spectrum Mobile™ powered devices outside these 5 states, the service automatically switches to Verizon’s C-band spectrum for expanded availability of higher-performance 5G connectivity around the country. Therefore, Spectrum Mobile Unlimited Plus plan is also available in the remaining 45 states but with comparatively slower speeds of up to 500 Mbps.
Spectrum Mobile’s unlimited phone service is one of the most affordable wireless communication services in the market. The Big Three cellular network providers in the country; AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon, cannot match the monthly rates offered by Spectrum Mobile™, and therefore, Spectrum Mobile™ poses fierce competition for them.
Spectrum Mobile Unlimited and Unlimited Plus plans have garnered an average rating in terms of customer satisfaction. But this is mainly due to the relative newness of the brand and infrastructure constraints. Spectrum Mobile™ service was introduced in 2018, so it will take time for the cellular communications provider to establish trust and gain popularity. Moreover, its reliance on Verizon wireless towers leads to data deprioritization in favor of Verizon customers and spotty coverage in the Western United States.
Refer to the comparison table below to see how Spectrum Mobile’s™ unlimited phone plans fare compared to its competitors.
|Spectrum Mobile™||Unlimited||$29.99/mo.||3.75/5 stars|
|Verizon Wireless||Unlimited Welcome||$35.00/mo.||4.5/5 stars|
|AT&T Wireless||Unlimited Starter||$65.00/mo.||3.75/5 stars|
