Verizon has launched a new more affordable phone carrier called Visible, according to a report by PhoneArena.com. The company secretly unveiled the company, charging only $40 for monthly service that including unlimited talk, text, and data in the U.S. The carrier uses Verizon’s 4G LTE network.
Users looking to access the service need to subscribe to Visible after being invited to join from a current subscriber. Those that received an invitation to join can download the app for the Apple App store. Here, they can fill out personal information and include the invite code they were provided in the invite.
Verizon then sends a SIM card to users the next day. SIM cards can be placed in phones, which then activates the Visible service. Top data speeds for the Visible network top out at 5 Mbps. Videos are played at 480 p. The network is only available for iOS currently.
Visible doesn’t require a contract for subscribers and does not cap data usage performance. Payments for the Visible service are made through PayPal or Venmo. Visible currently can only be used with iPhones models that have been unlocked.
Verizon added the Visible service as a way to keep subscribers under its company umbrella.
