The Death of Unlimited Data Plans for Verizon

Starting on July 7th, Verizon Wireless will no longer offer unlimited data plans for its customers.

Instead, they now will offer a tiered pricing model, which restricts each person to a certain number of gigabytes of data per month. Customers will have three options:

  • 2GB for $30 per month
  • 5GB for $50 per month
  • 10GB for $80 per month

Also, Verizon Wireless customers with features phones will be required to pay an extra $10 per month for just 75MB of data. If you go over your limit? You’ll be charged an extra $10 for each extra gigabyte you use.

While this isn’t unexpected, it does remind us that pricing models for most data plans are likely to change. AT&T already offers tiered data plans, though their 2GB data plan is $5 less than Verizon’s.
