Verizon to Raise Unlimited Data Plan By $20

Verizon Wireless intends to increase the price of its grandfathered unlimited mobile data plan by $20 per month to a total of $49.99. The change affects only 1% of Verizon customers, who've held onto these unlimited plans for some time. Verizon doesn't offer unlimited plans to new customers any more, who instead need to purchase mobile data in buckets. Any customer who has an unlimited plan under contract will be able to keep the current pricing until the contract terms are fulfilled; however, the majority of people with unlimited data plans are off contract. The $49.99 includes unlimited data, but not voice/messaging services; those cost extra. To offset the increased price a little bit, Verizon will allow people with these old unlimited plans to purchase devices through an installment plan, rather than the full retail cost. Verizon currently offers data in S, M, L, XL, and XXL allotments in prices ranging from $30 for 1GB to $100 for 15GB. Verizon said the change will go into effect after Nov. 15. Government and corporate accounts will not be affected.

"Verizon will allow people with these old unlimited plans to purchase devices...

...through an installment plan, rather than the full retail cost."

What nonsense! Installment billing or full retail price is the same thing. Either way, Verizon isn't subsidizing the cost of the handset.
just like tmobile bullsh*t no contract plan. if you leave early, you must pay off the phone completely. isnt that the same as a early termination fee ?

Not surprising

It reminds me back with I worked at sprint with the "unlimited for life guarantee." Customers that signed up under the plan were guaranteed unlimited data, but no where did it lock price. Sprint reps would even tell us that at any point they could change that price higher but still keep the "unlimited data guarantee."

If you don't like this change...vote with your wallet. If you can leave Verizon, do it. Always do your research and take advantage of any "trial periods" other carriers offer. Test the network before switching. The grass may or may not be greener on the other side.

Phoney BS

This is pure garbage. They might as well fire us as customers.
You don't have to stay...
