Yahoo, part of the Verizon Media portfolio, unveiled its first-ever unlimited phone plan, Yahoo Mobile. Yahoo Mobile will bring together the “capabilities of Verizon’s assets including its superior 4G LTE network and the trusted Yahoo brand, its content and scale to create the best experience and connectivity for consumers.”

The new plan will offer subscribers unlimited data, calls and texts for $39.99 a month.

With the launch of Yahoo Mobile, we are continuing to evolve our business by bringing a new, personalized Yahoo experience to the market that feeds our users’ passions, and also attracts new audiences. Combining the strengths of Verizon’s assets in wireless, technology, and media will enable us to deliver a valuable consumer offering and experiences that give people more of what they want.” – Guru Gowrappan, CEO of Verizon Media.
