Verizon Communications Inc. VZ has unveiled a new initiative that extends its best phone upgrade deals to both new and existing customers.

Starting May 30, the Ultimate Phone Upgrade will allow Verizon’s current and prospective users to enjoy top-tier offers for new devices without the need to switch carriers or worry about the condition of their trade-in phones.

With Verizon’s Unlimited Ultimate plan, customers can access the company’s best promotions for upgrading to the latest 5G phones, equipped with 5G Ultra Wideband.

The plan includes 60GB of mobile hotspot, high-speed international roaming, and global calling to a country of choice.

Extending beyond phone upgrades, the company is set to provide exclusive deals from premium streaming and content partners.

As part of these deals, YouTube Premium will be available as a monthly myPlan perk starting May 30, offering the service for $10 per month, a 30% discount.

Subscribers can enjoy ad-free videos, offline viewing, and access to YouTube Music Premium.
