Verizon Wireless Tweaks Prepaid Family Plan
Verizon Wireless today rolled out changes to its Verizon Prepaid Family Account, which lets subscribers take more control over the data available to each individual line. Data is available in 3 GB, 7 GB, 10 GB, and unlimited buckets. The first line costs $40, $50, $60, and $80, respectively, for each of these offerings. Lines two through five can be added to the first line at a small discount. For example, those who subscribe to the 3 GB plan will receive a $10 discount per line on lines two through five. Under this option, three lines would cost $100 per month: $40 for the first line, plus $30 each for the second and third lines. Customers who opt for the 7 GB plan will receive a $15 discount per additional line, while those who opt for the 10 GB or unlimited plans will receive a $20 discount per additional line. Each line enjoys its own data bucket, as data is not shared across the account. Verizon's prepaid service does not include taxes and fees in the pricing structure.
