Verizon is adding a higher tier to its unlimited 5G plan offerings that may suit globetrotters who also like to tether to their phone.

The nation’s largest carrier unveiled “Unlimited Ultimate,” a new plan that costs $100 a month (a $10 autopay discount is available). The biggest new features include 60 gigabytes of mobile hotspot data a month, as well 10GB of international high-speed data and unlimited calls and text messages while overseas.

Verizon had just overhauled its unlimited plans in May, offering Unlimited Welcome and Unlimited Plus. Unlimited Ultimate rounds out the offerings with a trio of options.

As with all plans, the price goes down as you add more lines. The cost is as low as $52 per line if you sign up for more 5 or more lines.

In comparison, a single line for Unlimited Welcome is $70 a month, while Unlimited Plus is $75 a month (or $10 less with autopay).

Subscribers to the new plan, which is available on August 31, will also have access to a half-off discount for connected devices like smartwatches or tablets, as well as access to better phone upgrade deals down the line.
