Verizon to discontinue unlimited web data plans

Wednesday, June 22, 2011


Starting in July, Verizon Wireless will stop offering new smartphone and tablet customers unlimited web data plans.

According to today's LA Times: the nation's largest cell phone provider will move to tiered data plans charging customers different rates for limited use packages.

You may remember AT&T, Verizon's biggest rival, scrapped its unlimited data plans in June of last year and now charges $25 a month for two-gigabytes of data and $10 for every additional gigabyte.

No word yet on what the tiered price packages for Verizon will look like.
