Which Unlimited Data Plan Is the Best?

Earlier this week, Verizon shocked us by resurrecting its unlimited data plan, albeit with some caveats. It turns out that if you use a lot of data, the plan is a pretty good deal. Because Verizon is the nation’s largest wireless carrier, it didn’t take long for the other majors—T-Mobile, Sprint, and AT&T—to follow up with their own updated unlimited offerings.

Finally, for the first time in more than five years, US wireless customers have a range of “unlimited” plan choices. But which plan is the best? Although the basics for what each carrier offers is similar, there are different trade-offs.
