Changes have swept through all the major carriers and Verizon is proud to lead the way. The new plan is easier and more flexible than the previous outstanding offerings our customers have enjoyed. The new data plan comes in four simple sizes: Small, medium, Large, and Extra Large. Now you can perfectly customize your plan to fit your needs better than ever before. If you are looking for light web browsing and basic email use, then consider the small plan: One gigabyte a month for 30 dollars. If you need more data than that, perhaps you want to stream your favorite music and videos, then you can seamlessly transition to the Medium or Large plans. For families or small businesses with multiple lines, and multiple devices, the Extra Large plan is available which gives you 12 GB for 80$. Naturally, each smart phone line adds 20 dollars per month. Verizon Wireless can also accommodate customers with even greater data needs with plans even larger than the S, M, L, and XL. Just sign up for the data plan that best suits your requirements.
Choosing a new cellphone retailer and cellphone plan can be quite an undertaking. After you purchase your new phone, pick up some cell phone accessories and load up your favorite apps on the new device, days, weeks and months quickly pass. One unassuming morning can take a new kind of toll on a person when you hop out of your vehicle, and the phone smashes glass side down onto the pavement in the parking lot.
Last year, 2014, 68 million Americans spent 180 billion dollars traveling to other countries, which is an increase of about 10% over 2013. Americans love to travel and it has never before been cheaper or easier to do. Verizon is dedicated to making sure that you have everything you need to remain connected and engaged with the world while you are touring its riches. Like every other aspect of travel, having an enjoyable experience requires a little planning and being prepared. Not every country is totally compatible with American standards and technology. Check out Verizon’s interactive Trip Planner to see if your device will work in the country or countries you plan on visiting. If your cell phone or device is not compliant with the telecommunications standards in the country you are visiting, you may want to consider purchasing a World Phone. If it is just a short trip, you can borrow one through Verizon’s International Travel Program. This program contains everything you need to stay totally connected to your friends, family, and business partners back home. Verizon Wireless even has a WhatsApp that contains a bundle of features that allows you to message friends and family about your trip.
It is no secret that the next generation of jobs in this country will likely be in STEM fields. Currently, there are more than 3 million STEM jobs unfilled. What is worse, only 17 percent of American high school seniors are both proficient in mathematics and are intending to pursue STEM majors in college. For students of color, women, or students in low-income neighborhoods this gap is even wider. A STEM competent workforce is not just important for the country, it is important for Verizon as well. To that end, Verizon has launched an education programs to address this need. The Verizon Innovative Learning Schools has expanded to 24 schools and has reached 200 teachers and 11000 students. The goal of the VILS is to increase the use of mobile technology such as cell phones and iPads in today’s classrooms that align with the ISTE standards. The International Society for Technology Education provides VILS professional development training and mentorship to educators and a designated technology coach at each school.
