[df-subtitle]Unlimited data customers off contract will get the moderate increase[/df-subtitle]
Verizon plans to raise the price of its unlimited data plan to $59.99, an increase of $20 per month. While this sounds likes like a jerk move (and it is), the change allegedly only affects roughly one percent of Verizon’s user base. Verizon no longer offers an unlimited data plan and today only provides buckets in S,M,L, XL and, for a limited time, XXL. The data pools range from 1GB to 18GB of data per month.
According to The Verge, a majority of Verizon’s customers still under the unlimited plan are no longer under contract. Those who are still under contract will be able to finish out the obligation under the current price. But, once fulfilled, the price goes up.
As a token of good will, Verizon will reportedly give those subscribers the option of purchasing a new device under an installment plan.
