    Why did you downgrade your plan?

    They introduced new calling plans back in 2017, no one was forced to switch, I've still got 1080p streaming and it only costs me $20 to add a line.

    Not sure how to view the details but I've got 15Gb high speed hot spot and no restrictions on my video streaming. I can still stream in 1440p(max resolution of my phones). This is the unlimited plan they first introduced before breaking it into the go and beyond crap mentioned in the article.

    You are restricted technically to 720P on smartphones and 1080 on tablets. It will vary from service to service if it detects it.

    That doesn't say much. You would have to look at the actual name of your plan on the website. I assume yours may be the "NEW VERIZON PLAN UNLIMITED" one.

    Casting YouTube from my S7 to my TV I can see a visible difference between 720p and 1080p. Maybe that ignores it because it's casting, I don't know.

    Casting isn't the same thing at all. Casting tells your Chromecast to grab the video and that is it. After that the Chromecast takes over the streaming part -- your phone is just a controller.

    Plus to cast you usually have to be on the same WiFi as the Chromecast so therefore aren't on cellular which would negate cellular data use anyway.

    Yep so you basically get all the benefits/limitations of the "Beyond Unlimited" plan.

    I don't know how I feel about nobody in ANY version of Verizon's unlimited plans being able to stream video above 720p {on a phone).

    I'm sure I'll get over it, but it's kinda strange not having a choice any longer...

    Yeah it kinda sucks but it is what it is. You can go to T-Mobile but have to upgrade to their HD plan, same as Sprint, same as AT&T. T-Mobile is the one where their HD means HD though (any quality) but all the carriers require some "upgraded" plan from the base to get it.
