  2. Why would I want to buy a Data Boost?

    If your shared data account or 1 of your account members on an unlimited plan reaches the plan's allowance of 4G LTE high-speed data,  slower connection and download speeds result. A Data Boost can help.

    If you have:

    A plan that includes unlimited mobile hotspot data: When a line on your account reaches your plan's monthly allotment of Unlimited Mobile Hotspot data use, there are no overage fees, but that line connects at reduced speeds (up to 600 Kbps) until the end of the bill cycle. A Data Boost gets your Mobile Hotspot back up to 4G LTE speed.

    The new Verizon Plan (shared data plans, e.g., S, M, L): If you reached your monthly data limits and enabled Safety Mode, you won't be charged for data overages. But until the end of the bill cycle, all lines on your account are connected at reduced speeds (128 Kbps) for all use, including basics like viewing a web page or checking email. Buying a Data Boost returns your account's general and Mobile Hotspot use to 4G LTE speed for a 1 GB duration per Data Boost.

    Just Kids: This plan comes with Safety Mode automatically enabled, so no overages are charged. Instead, your child's smartphone connection speed slows to up to 128 Kbps when the 5 GB/month data limit is reached. Una $15 Data Boost returns the Just Kids line’s use to 4G LTE speed for a 1 GB duration for the rest of the billing cycle.

  5. If I go over my unlimited data allowance, will a Data Boost speed up my regular data use?

    No. For unlimited plans that include unlimited mobile hotspot, a Data Boost returns only mobile hotspot use to 4G LTE speed for the line for which you bought the Data Boost.

    When you go over your unlimited data allowance, your general device use, in times of congestion your connection may be temporarily prioritized behind other Verizon Wireless customers.

    This prioritization may result in slower download speeds compared to other Verizon Wireless customers' experience on the same cell site at that moment. Buying a Data Boost for your line won't affect how your data is prioritized.

  6. ¿Cómo compro Data Boost?

    To buy a Data Boost either:

    • Go to My Verizon online - Go to My Usage, choose a line and click Get More Data.
    • Abre My Verizon app en tu teléfono: ve a Data Hub y toca Agregar Data Boost.

    If you don't see this option, you may not be eligible to buy a Data Boost.

  7. Does my Data Boost expire at the end of the month?

    The Data Boost's expiration date depends on the plan you have:

    • Unlimited plans, Just Kids and Unlimited for 5G Ultra Wideband - Your Data Boost expires at the end of your current bill cycle.
    • The new Verizon Plan (shared data plans, e.g., S, M, L) - Any unused portion of your Data Boost is added to your pool of Carryover Data and expires at the end of the next bill cycle (e.g., a Data Boost bought during your June bill cycle expires at the end of your July bill cycle).

    To see your bill cycle dates open My Verizon or the My Verizon app and choose Bill from the top menu.

    *Data boosts aren't available on Start Unlimited and Go Unlimited.

  8. Is my Data Boost shared across all the devices on my account?

    Whether the Data Boost is shared across all devices on your account depends on your plan:

    • Unlimited plans and Just Kids - The Data Boost only provides 4G LTE data for mobile hotspot use on the line you bought it for. If you need mobile hotspot data for more than 1 line, you need to buy a separate Data Boost for each line.
    • The new Verizon Plan (shared data plans, e.g., S, M, L) - Your Data Boost is shared across all lines on your account.
    • Unlimited with 5G Ultra Wideband Hotspot Data: The Data Boost provides extra 5G and 4G LTE data on the 5G Jetpack line only.

    *Data boosts aren't available on Start Unlimited and Go Unlimited.
