Verizon Wireless today launched Pay As You Go, a new prepay service with lower rates, to compete with Virgin Mobile. The new service is priced at $0.10 per minute, plus $0.25 per call. Unlike the company's previous FREEUP service, the same rate applies at all hours. As with FREEUP, downloadable ringtones and games are available from the company's BREW-based Get It Now service. The starter kit, which retails for $129.99 in most markets, includes a Kyocera KX414 and up to $90 worth of airtime.
It's about time.
