Although AT&T has launched their revolutionary new International Day Pass plan, Verizon does not seem to be cowed or deterred and has responded back with their Unlimited Together plan. Verizon reports that their new plan provides unlimited voice calling minutes to landlines to well over 70 countries, as well as mobile lines in up to 40 different nations. Additionally, they offer discounted calling to over 160 nations, but much is yet to be seen as to how steep these discounts will be.
The successor to 4G LTE (Long-Term Evolution) is right around the corner. It is called 5G or Fifth Generation. Fifth Generation will be a new technology that will complement and expand upon existing mobile infrastructure and technology.
