Verizon should be ashamed to offer such a pathetic international travel product. TravelPass is not even remotely close to competitive with the industry offerings.
TravelPass - $10/day for 0.5GB of data. This is a miniscule amount of data and most smartphone users would use this up in a flash without even realizing it. Throttling to 2G speeds makes using data completely useless and we are forced to pay another $10 for an additional 0.5GB.
Contrast that to AT&T's International Day Pass, which is $10/day to extend your U.S. plan internationally. If you're on an unlimited plan, that means unlimited talk, text, and high speed data. No throttling, no overage charges.
Even T-Mobile's plan is wildly more consumer friendly. $50 gets you 15GB of data with no expiration date. To get 15GB of data with Verizon would cost you $300!!!!!!!
It is incredibly frustrating as a frequent international traveler to be stuck with such a pathetic product. Verizon should at least offer a plan with a larger data bucket. Say 2GB a day for $25.
Time to get it together, Verizon!
