Verizon Installs 200 GB Cap On Unlimited Customers

Verizon Wireless plans to cut off customers who use 200 GB of data in any given month, even if those customers are grandfathered in on unlimited plans. These customers will have to agree to switch to a more limited plan or face loss of service. "Because our network is a shared resource and we need to ensure all customers have a great mobile experience with Verizon, we are notifying a small group of customers on unlimited plans who use more than 200GB a month that they must move to a Verizon Plan by February 16, 2017," said Verizon via email to Ars Technica. Verizon hasn't offered unlimited plans since 2011, so the new policy impacts only those who've held onto old, old plans. Verizon made a similar move in August 2016, but set a higher 500 GB cap at that time. This new, lower cap will be applied to customers who use more than 200 GB per month for several months in a row. Those who don't agree to move to a limited plan and are disconnected will have 50 days to re-activate their account on a limited plan. Verizon throttles data speeds once customers exceed their monthly data allotment. Verizon's largest plan includes 100 GB per month and costs $450.

I agree totally. I have an account with Verizon with 8 lines. We average 20-22 GB per month totally. Granted we try to limit our use away from Wi-Fi. I find it difficult to see how one line can exceed 200 GB per month, month after month after mont...

Try taking your own advice. You may be over your limit for asinine opinions on the internet in one day.

To the previous poster

Get a life. Some of us don't like to be limited by low data caps regardless if we use that much data or not.
