Verizon data only plans

It appears Verizon has made some changes to it's 'data only' plans. When I go on line & look at the devices on my Verizon account & select manage plans; I am presented with the offerings in the attached.
On the surface these prices appear to be very competitive.

The 100 GB option is $4 per month cheaper than a similar plan at AT&T.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I think these are postpaid. That's fine for a full timer but I much prefer the AT&T prepaid because I don't have to pay it every month.

Are you able to pause your service or are you buying a new SIM card when needed?

I am a full timer that works from my RV. I would say my needs are different than users that want to suspend the service when not in use.
I do not pause my service.

It depends how long you want to pause. There's no official concept of pausing but you can effectively do it by simply not "refilling". Eventually you'll need a new SIM but it's not clear how long you need to go before that becomes necessary.

The nice thing about Verizon (and possibly others) is as long as you keep paying, the old plans still work.
Way back when, large corporations provided their sales and field service people with cellular data access. This was years ago in the infancy of the industry, and these plans were truly unlimited.

These unlimited SIMs became available thru private parties on Ebay. I had one for years, paid my guy a hundred or so, he paid Verizon, we all got real unlimited lte data.

A few years ago, Verizon offered a "Prepaid unlimited plan." True unlimited LTE for $65 a month. I got one then and will never let it go.
I've seen these available on ebay as well. These are a straight purchase, you buy the sim and the account login and just pickup the payments.

There is no reason to pay for "not really unlimited" data.

Typically these plans are offered in a variety of marketplaces & are generally classified as '3rd Party Reseller Plans'.

If you were/are lucky enough to have acquired one of these plans as the original user, consider yourself very fortunate.
If you are not the original user of one of these plans, I suspect someone is in violation of the carrier's user agreement. There are may users who have successfully utilized these plans & there are many users who have been burned by them.
Each user has their own data requirements, budget & risk tolerance to consider.

In the relatively short time I've been playing in the cellular internet sandbox, I believe the carriers have improved their offerings.
