And So It Begins, Verizon CEO Confirms Tiered Data Plans
I kind of want to put this article in the rant section, because it is well known how I feel about Verizon and their habits of nickel and diming their customers to death.
Engadget Mobile is reporting today that Verizon CEO Ivan Seidenberg has confirmed that over the next four to six months, his company will be moving to tiered pricing on their data plans. You knew this was coming, Verizon cannot pass up a monetization opportunity, and with Droid phones crunching data like Captain Crunch, this is too juicy of an opportunity for them to pass up.
Once the barrier of being the first to launch tiered plans was removed, it was only a matter of time before we saw Verizon go down this road. There is no word on what the tiered pricing is going to look like, but you can bet it is going to match every other tiered pricing arrangement ever made. The low end making it miserable so that you will want to upgrade to the “premium concierge” tier.
I really hope we don’t see the other carriers move to this tiered scheme, but I think it is inevitable. Unlimited data, it has been great knowing you.
