Glossary Definition for: gUDP

gUDP is shorthand for 'Grandfathered Unlimited Data Plan', and more specifically refers to Verizon's legacy unlimited data plans.

These plans were taken off the market in 2011, but continue to be grandfathered in for now - and are still obtainable by jumping through some hoops. They are not subject to throttling or network management and are often a top pick data option for nomads.

Data seekers used to just call the plan Verizon UDP (unlimited data plans), but had to add the 'g' when Verizon launched their BeyondUnlimited data plans in 2017.
