Best Unlimited Data Plan for One Person

I’ve had my fair share of experience in being in a family plan, and although the biggest benefit is paying less, going solo means less debate over who’s delinquent and more peace of mind despite the slight price increase.

If I had to choose one best-unlimited data plan for one person, it would be Mint’s $30 unlimited data plan for someone on a budget and Verizon’s $60 (with autopay) unlimited prepaid plan for someone wanting reliable coverage.
