    Is the only difference between FUDP and BUDP the $5/mo savings?

    The multi-line discount is different. The FUDP was $80 for 1 line and $140 for 2 lines with additional lines @ $20 per line. BUDP is $85 for 1 line and $160 for 2 lines with additional lines @ $20 per line UP TO 4 lines, starting with the 5th line it goes up to $50 per each additional line.

    Other than that I believe they are the same.

    I’m debating switching to the new plans. I have 3GUDP all out of contract. Each user uses no more 8-10 a month. Two of them are little ones with their iPads. I’ve yet to see the $20 price increase as they just exited their contracts. I thought about doing the loyalty trick might be a good thing. But now I’m not sure if it’s worth it for me. Any input would be great.

    What are paying now in total? Is it 3 lines total? At 8-10 GB per line, gUDP doesn't have any special value at all. So it will boil down to price.

    270 for 4 gudp with 700 minutes & unlimited texts. The plan also has a 2gb iPhone. Minutes use isn’t a factor. The 2gb never sees 1 gb.

    I was in a similar position as yours.
    Had 4 GUDP and this is what I did.
    Kept one line with the loyalty plan and switched the other 3 lines to the 20gb plan.
    The savings are huge even in the first year when compared to the GUDP.
    Thank You.

    I was paying $210 because I also had some other discounts.
    I was expecting to see the $20 increase per line as they went off contract.
    The increase along with the fact that tethering was getting harder to do on GUDP, forced me to move.
    I'm paying roughly the same with the FUDP. Maybe I'll get throttled after 22GB. That doesn't really matter since tethering of up to 15GB is included.

    Mine switch off the GUDP was a win.

    I didn't want to pay $20 more. I now have Sprint.

    We all know the average speed is lower. Anyway Sprint average speed is lower than Verizon.

    I was confused about what you were trying to convey.
    For $20 a month cheaper it is good.
    It's good for what Verizon charges.
    The bottom line is that very few sites will deliver content to you at those speeds, so it's more than enough.

    I chose to stay with Verizon because Sprint and t-Mobile aren't good everywhere I go.
    AT&T is not and never will be an option for me.

    This thread is proof that people don't want to pay extra. For me its either verizon extend my contract or I port out. Besides sometime I feel like getting ripoff because I'm paying a premium and I still get deprioritize.

    I ultimately switched away back in August when Verizon said that any video stream is subject to strings and caps. Data was already slow at my job, so why pay more for similar (or worse) service. I had my gUDP because the prices were almost the same (~$4 difference for me).

    When I switched and gotten the proration stuff straightened out (I changed my bill cycle date and it took 2 months to get that settled and I switched plans on top of that), I saw the tax savings. I am paying ~$17 less now. I'll take the $17.

    Has anyone recently tried to add the loyalty plan to retain their gudp? I was denied twice from chat and phone reps. Is this not allowed anymore?
