A Data Boost is extra high-speed data the account owner or account manager can buy to help the account’s lines 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 Verizon Plan Unlimited and Connected Device Unlimited Plan - You can buy a Data Boost for a line on your account, to resume mobile hotspot's 4G LTE speed for that line.
- The new Verizon Plan (shared data plans, e.g., S, M, L) and Just Kids Plan - Buying a Data Boost adds 1 GB of 4G LTE speed data for the account's general device use, including Mobile Hotspot.
- Unlimited with 5G Ultra Wideband (5G Jetpack only): Buy a data boost to add 50GB more of 5G Ultra Wideband data and 5GB more of 4G LTE data to your 5G Jetpack.
- 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.
To check your plan name, log into My Verizon online or the My Verizon app.
