A Data Boost is extra 4G LTE high-speed data you can buy for your account to help you avoid slower connection speeds.
When you buy a Data Boost, what the extra high-speed data is used for depends on your plan:
- Above Unlimited, Beyond Unlimited,* the new Verizon Plan Unlimited and Connected Device Unlimited Plan, you can buy a Data Boost for Mobile Hotspot use only.
- The new Verizon Plan (shared data plans, e.g., S, M, L), you can buy a Data Boost for your general device use, including Mobile Hotspot.
- Prepaid monthly plans (except unlimited), you can buy add on data for your general device use, including Mobile Hotspot. Visit our prepaid FAQs to learn more.
