Verizon Wireless today unfurled new rate plans in response to recent offerings from AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile. The "More Everything Plan" increases the data in some pricing tiers and drops the cost for some Verizon Edge plans. For example, all Edge customers choosing data plans up to 8GB will see their prices drop by $10 per month. Customers who have data buckets of 10GB and higher will see their prices drop by $20 per month. Verizon's Edge plans allow customers to pay for their device over time. Further, Verizon is bumping the $40 500MB plan to 1GB, the $50 1GB plan to 2GB, and the $60 2GB plan to 3GB. These changes will be applied automatically. The more devices that are added to a single account, the more customers can save. The More Everything plans are available starting today.

there you go

That's why we need competition, that's why sprint need to stay away from t-mobile
Agreed. I actually just went to Sprint from Verizon and to my surprise the experience has been good so far. My area has been upgraded to the new hardware and LTE has been working like a charm. And... my phone bill is only 25 + tax! Let's hope the se...

But Verizon and AT&T don't care what Sprint does. There is nothing that Sprint could ever do to make the big 2 do anything they don't want to do. Sprint isn't competition for them. If they merged with Tmo then they would be a threat.

But did you notice...

I've been looking at the Droid Maxx because the full retail was $400. Now it's back up to $600.
It's VZW, we're not saving any money. Mad
But you can at least use your phone to make phone calls and use data unlike Sprint and TMO.

Reality.......

So here's the thing. VZW's actually not even trying to compete here. First, their biggest competitor, AT&T is offering up to $25/month off, vs. VZW's $20/month off. Then, unlike EVERY other carrier, the discounts on the monthly access fees don't apply to customers who bring in their own device or pay full price for their phone upfront, So even if I pay full retail, and don't get a subsidy, Verizon still won't give me the discount, UNLESS I opt for one of the EDGE plans, which still aren't as good as their competitors.

And yet Verizon still makes more profit than any other carrier and continualy adds more and more customers. You get what you pay for. And people want coverage.
