Even if the US has few mobile carriers, AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon are major carriers in the region. Every carrier has both Prepaid and Postpaid connections. Among them, some operators run Prepaid service in different brands as an experiment. It means They may have huge offers for a short time and utilize Major carrier towers. The same goes for the Visible Prepaid service. Visible uses Verizon towers and works as a standalone brand. Verizon already allows Visible to use its low band 5G to its users. But the supporting models are less. Now you can access Visible Prepaid 5G in the Samsung Galaxy S20 series. It includes regular S20, S20 Plus, and Ultra version.
Visible, the Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) of Verizon, which offers “unlimited everything,” rolled out its service exclusively for iPhone 12 last December. Now it expands 5G services to selected Android handsets starting from the Galaxy S20 series.

Along with iPhone 12, Visible allowed some of the Android handsets to enjoy this best offer. These selected Android handsets include Samsung Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20 Plus, and Galaxy S20 Ultra.
As you need a system update from Visible to use the 5G unlimited internet, it is not clear that other Visible compatible mobiles like Pixel 5 and OnePlus 8 will also get the Visible 5G Unlimited data-offer. You can also check with your mobile details about 5G compatibility.

Whether you are using an iphone12 or Android selected handset, the Visible fee is the same $40 per month, but the speed of Visible 5G is limited to 200Mbps. It is far low than the Verizon 5G Ultra-Wideband network that is over 900 Mbps. But it is far better than its original service of max speed of 5Mbps. It is also offering unlimited 5G for just $40 per month, half of the Verizon unlimited plan for $80 per month.
Visible 5G service is available in all those areas where Verizon 5G Ultra-Wideband network is available. Currently, 5G Nationwide is available in more than 1800 cities. You can see the Visible 5G coverage area from here.
Verizon always gives lots of offers to its Prepaid users. Visible is the new era of service providers with no offices, no employees, no infrastructure. That is why Visible is providing the same network reliability as Verizon at very cheap rates. No contract needed, no hidden fees, no multiple plans for your temptations, neither forcing you to upgrade to a more expansive plan—all these reasons made Visible the hot choice for quality seekers within a low budget. After positive feedback from iPhone users, Visible allowed this service to Android handsets.
Initially, the Android handset list is not vast, but soon you will see the long list, including many more handsets. Although at a low speed but you have the satisfaction of using Verizon’s wide and reliable network without any data limit at such a low price.
