Verizon's network has been growing fast with new 5G bands enabling faster speeds and plans designed to make the most of the upgraded network. Not only that, Verizon has several deals on Android devices to help make switching to the carrier as big of an upgrade as possible whether you're interested in a new Pixel, Samsung, or even iPhone. If you're ready to switch to Verizon with two lines, you can buy one Google Pixel 6 and get a second one up to $800 off (opens in new tab) with an unlimited plan.

If you're looking to get started with Verizon, your best bet for getting the fastest speeds is picking a phone with C-band support. On Verizon, C-band is part of the Ultra Wideband 5G network. On the spec sheet, C-band support is listed as support for band n77. Phones connected to C-band can see speeds as high as 1Gbps with a strong signal.

Many newer Android phones such as the Pixel 6 and Galaxy S21 FE the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 series support this C-band connection. The Galaxy Tab S7 FE 5G also supports Verizon's C-band network.

Still, not everyone needs all of that speed and can get by just fine on the slower nationwide 5G network or LTE. For these folks, a phone like the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE is a fantastic value with solid hardware and an Android 12 update ready to install.

Save when you buy two

If you decide to switch, you'll have a few unlimited choices which are competitive with some of the best cell phone plans you can get. The 5G Play More plan is one of the best values for most people with access to the full 5G network, 50GB of premium data, and 25GB of premium mobile hotspot data. It also comes with a subscription for Disney+, Hulu, ESPN+, and either Google Play Pass or Apple Arcade. This plan comes in at $70 per line with two lines and $45 per line with four lines.

The 5G Do More Unlimited plan has the same data amounts for the same price but swaps out the streaming subscriptions with up to 50% off a connected device plan, 600GB of cloud storage, and a TravelPass each month. For $10 more, you can get the 5G Get More plan with all of the above with an upgrade to unlimited premium data and 50GB of hotspot data. With all three of these plans, you can also get 50% off a home internet plan.

Verizon also has a cheaper 5G Start plan that only supports 5G nationwide and doesn't come with any premium data or hotspot data. This plan will be a good fit for older phones without C-band support or for people that don't need any hotspot data. This plan comes in at $60 per line with two lines and $35 per line with four.
