Verizon Will End Unlimited Data on July 7

Posted by at 11:21 am on July 5, 2011

Verizon in a statement validated rumors of capped data plans coming this week. As of July 7, new customers or those having to change their plans will only have four limited plans to choose from. A basic 75MB plan at $10 will cover non-smartphone users, while $30 now gets users just 2GB instead of the unlimited access it provided before; the $50 5GB and $80 10GB plans carry over from data-only devices.

The carrier told FierceWireless that the $20 tethering plan is still in effect and adds 2GB of data that can be combined and used any way the user likes. Those with 4G phones and unlimited on-device data can have the rumored unlimited LTE hotspot use, though they will pay $30 a month.

Overage on any of the plans is $10 for each extra gigabyte. Anyone grandfathered into the older, better plans shouldn’t have trouble upgrading to a new device without having to use the capped plans, Verizon said.
