CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- If you have a Verizon Wireless unlimited data plan, you might see a change in your options this summer.
Verizon is expanding their network this summer to a 4G LTE and when you upgrade to that plan, you'll be required to sign on to a new data-bucket plan which will let you share data between family members and devices.
“As we have stated publicly, Verizon Wireless has been revaluating its data pricing structure for some time. Customers have told us that they want to share data, similar to how they share minutes today. We are working on plans to provide customers with that option later this year,” a Verizon spokesperson said.
Last July Verizon Wireless dropped its unlimited plan for new customers, but let existing customers keep their plans. Now it looks like those plans might be ending for everyone.
As the story develops, Verizon Wireless says, “We will share specific details of the plans and any related policy changes well in advance of their introduction, so customers will have time to evaluate their choices and make the best decisions for their wireless service. It is our goal and commitment to continue to provide customers with the same high value service they have come to expect from Verizon Wireless.”
