Verizon Adds $80 5GB Option to Pre-Paid Data
Verizon Wireless has updated its pre-paid wireless broadband plans with a new $80 monthly option for 5GB of data. Other pre-paid data plans from Verizon Wireless include 1GB for $50/month, 300MB for $30/week, and 100MB for $15/day. Verizon Wireless also offers post-paid broadband at $60 for 5GB/month or $40 for 250MB/month. The new plan option was added in early August. As a point of comparison, Sprint's pre-paid wireless broadband option via Virgin Mobile USA offers unlimited data for $40 per month.

Am I reading something wrong? Virgin's website says $60 for 5GB
Even still..better deal than VZW.
It could be an announced price plan change and hasn't been implemented yet, and Eric Zeman has his tenses incorrect.
Let's see, I can pay $80 for 5 GB of data with Verizon, or $40 for unlimited data with Virgin
Yeah, that's showin' 'em, Verizon! Keepin' it competitive!
This must be part of Verizon's "We Think Customers Are Really Stupid" marketing campaign.
Guess what? Price is not the only consideration.
I hope they are handing out free devices... oh, they aren't?
Verizon is honestly the greediest bunch of bastards in the US cellular crowd.
When will AT&T follow suit...
What doesn't make sense is why Verizon's 5GB pre-paid plan costs more than their post-paid 5GB laptop card plan.....the primary advantage of pre-paid is supposed to be that it is cheaper
Just really interesting move on VZW's part.
Quite a difference
What is really odd is...
If you live in a 4G area, ok, I can see it... but for the majority of the nation... wtf?
$15 A DAY?
