4G price plan


Mar 8, 2011, 10:51 PM
Looks like I'm sticking with my Incredible. Verizon is set to go into gouge mode with the new 4G phones.

Even though this is for the tablet I am sure it will be the same for the never to be released ThunderBolt.

1GB Included in package - $20.00
3GB $35.00 - $10.00 Per-Minute After Allowance
5GB $50.00 - $10.00 ""
10GB $80.00 - $10.00 ""

This is almost exactly the same as they were charging all along for 3G data for tablets, and for tethering (except on tethering, everything is slipped down a tier (none included, and peaks at 5GB for $80). And they were doing this right alongside the unlimited phone data. So I don't see anything to support the theory that just because they are charging that for tablet data they will charge that for phone data. Not saying they won't, since I don't know, but let's wait until we have actual news before jumping off the cliff. Please?

I hope you are correct. I would like to upgrade to the Thunderbolt from the incredible but I am not willing to pay any more than I am now.

Keep in mind, that inb the past 3g wifi adaptors, netbooks, and data cards were priced as the following.

39.99 = 250mb
59.99 = 5gb

They moved those to the following prices.

20.00 = 1gb
35.00 = 3gb
50.00 = 5gb
80.00 = 10gb

The 4g mobile broadband prices are the following.

50.00 = 5gb
80.00 = 10gb

Personally I feel that the data prices changes on the 3g Mobile broadband was a good change, it made it more affordable and offered more choices for every customer.
I have also heard that they will be using a 4g data charge, but who's to say it isn't going to be similar to Sprint and charge and additional $10 monthly for unlimited 4g?
