Verizon Confirms $30 Unlimited Plan for iPhone, Cuts $15 Option
This isn't really bad for AT&T...
Ever since AT&T lowered the data plan from a solid $30 to either $15 or $25, I've seen more people who would have otherwise went for a messaging phone now going for smartphones because they are more affordable. Older people and younger people right out of college. It hurts my commission, no doubt. But in the grand scheme of things, it works well for the customer.
I always say this is all about choice. You can pick your carrier, you can pick how much you can afford every month and see which provide...
We've seen lots more people go to a smartphone based on data plan pricing alone. I find it helps my employees commission. Yes, you lose $5/smartphone BUT I find it's offset by additional sales.
The people that ACTUALLY use more than 2GB of data per month are far and few between. I'm sure someone will try to argue that point with me, but will lose.
Besides, what good is unlimited when you're on VZW's slow 3G network? As the HSPA+ starts turning up, and throttles are released, you'll see existing 3G phones fly on AT&T. I can get 5 Mbps on an iPhone 4 consistently where I'm at. Folks that switch are going to be surprised at the difference...
You also do realize that Verizon and AT&T will both be using LTE for their "4G", right?
There will be no "lights out" for anyone...
Verizon's spectrum licenses cover their current 3g network and more.
Watching red and blue argue is quite entertaining. Its also an exercise in futility.
Stop complaining, because3 you are wrong.
No, YOU stop complaining because YOU are wrong.
Better than comedy central.
The statement regarding At&t coming in last is based on customer satisfaction polls (e.g., Consumer reports, JD Power, etc). The 4th qtr numbers that you are referring to is a different topic.
AT&T closed a gap of 5+ million customers in less than 3 yrs.
THAT's why Vz needed iPhone
