Visible, like Mint, is all about low-cost unlimited plans. The provider offers a simple two-plan lineup: The Visible plan comes with unlimited data, along with the standard talk and text features you’d expect. And this data is truly unlimited—no reduced speeds after a certain threshold. This helps make up for the increased price compared to Mint’s offerings.
The Visible+ plan is intriguing. This plan keeps the same unlimited talk, text, and data as the standard plan but adds two major performance boosts: 5G Ultra Wideband and a premium network experience.
Visible+ gives you access to 5G Ultra Wideband, Verizon’s fastest form of 5G (available mostly in large urban centers). Since Visible uses Verizon’s network (and is actually owned by Verizon), users can access these speeds at a reduced price.
The other big perk is the premium network experience, which means your data will not be deprioritized by Verizon. In other words, no matter how congested the network becomes, you’ll always get the fastest speeds, whereas users on the standard Visible plan may not.
Finally, Visible’s hotspot arrangement is interesting in that it’s entirely unlimited, but with data speeds capped at 5Mbps. This means that you can freely use it as an internet fallback or even your primary connection, but speeds will be slow at best. We wouldn’t recommend streaming on 5Mbps, for example. It’s also worth noting that on the Visible+ plan, your hotspot use can be deprioritized after 50GB, despite the premium network experience.
