Verizon Wireless has confirmed to the Wall Street Journal that it is testing a new plan that offers unlimited data, messaging, Verizon-to-Verizon mobile calling and 450 anytime minutes for $70 per month. The plan is being tested by a select group of customers via a $20 discount. Verizon wouldn't say if or when the plan would become a regular service plan offering. Sprint has offered a $70 plan for more than a year.

Nothing better to do with their time

Why test this with a carrier that has one of the worst plan structures out there?
It will hardly make a dent,
A dent in what?
...
$30 unlimited for smartphones (not the cheapest, but far from the worst)

$20, $25, $50, $80 for tablets. Currently best in industry.

A 10GB plan for data (only one out there right now) Yes, I know sprint has unlimitedbut dont expect that to la...

This Mark S character seems very upset over the changes in the Cellular phone industry. And is also very argumentative towards anyone with an opinion that differs from his own.

My question is, why do you spend time on a website dedicated to coveri...

A worse plan than Sprints...

Includes all the same things EXCEPT the M2M on Verizon's only covers other Verizon customers, and Sprint's covers all cell carriers.

If this is a new, discounted plan and it's still not caught up to Sprint's, they might be in trouble.
Sprint FINALLY started adding post paid customers this year, and they haven't had a profitable quarter in over 2 years.

Sprint's trying to catch up to verizon, not the other way around

Sprint has had this for years... for $30/month!

There are hundreds of thousands of people on Sprint SERO plans that pay $30 a month for this level of service.

$40 if you add Any Mobile, Any Time and Sprint Navigation.

$50 if you add AMAT, Navigation and 4G data.

This is not news.

I am confused, why in the world are you comparing a plan that was/is only available to Sprint employees to a plan that is available to the general public?

I Joshua, fail to see the correlation.

just called Verizon must read

I just called Verizon to ask them bout this expecting the same response oh we don't know bout this but she looked it up and all I had to do was extend my contract 1 year and she added the feature for the 20 dollar discount
This stuff about having to extend a contract for 1yr is a bunch of BS!!! Contracts are suppose to be for subsidising a device not a rate plan!
...
I just called Verizon (Dublin, Ohio Call Center) and the rep I spoke to said there is no such plan.

What's there to test about?

I'm sure their customers are dying for a price change. Especially something like this. This is a great deal, and all carriers should have something like this already.

I know! These stupid tests! OF COURSE consumers want more
*reasonable* rates Verizon. ENOUGH with the damn testing.
Role this out already.

A better 2-line plan would be nice also.

I would think they were testing to make sure the network could handle the amount of data being used.....
