    T-Mobile is unlimited 4Glte off my iPhone for an extra $25 a month. Otherwise it’s unlimited 3G.
    Sure they say they throttle you after 30Gb but I’ve used over 100Gb in a month and haven’t seen any lag.

    Visible $40/mo. Unlimited, unthrottled, uncapped 4G LTE data on Verizon’s network.

    I have 3 devices on Verizon. My main device, a phone probably has the same plan as you, after 30 GB of hotspot at LTE speed it slows down to 600 kbps.

    I also need more data, so I have two other devices with unlimited data as well, but after 15 GB they also slow down to 600 kbps. The first additional device is $20 per month, and the second is $10 per month.

    I asked Verizon if I can get more hotspot, and the only way is to add additional devices beyond the number I have now. But the plans are always changing, I check every month or so.

    Verizon is the same, they don't throttle your phone. But they will throttle your hotspot the second you get over 30 GB. Are you referring to data used on your phone, or as hotspot to a computer?

    I had a smart tv, Xbox, printer, and computer that I connected to the internet through my phones hotspot. The only time I use my iPhone is to answer calls, listen to audiobooks, and satellite view directions to a shipper/consignee.

    I use data on my phone but also need lots of hotspot data. It’s not easy to come buy without stacking account or devices.

    I've got a Verizon Jetpack.......$ 70.00 per month.....unlimited data......no caps, no speed reductions at all. While pricey it is unlimited which is what I needed, so worth it.

    I have a Verizon jet pack as well 20 per month, unlimited but throttled after 15 GB. I’ve looked at the Verizon site many times for something like you mentioned and would take that plan in a heartbeat. Is it something new, or perhaps legacy? Do you have a link showing the details?

    edit. I just scheduled a call with Verizon to discuss that plan you mention.
