If true, looks like they are about to shoot themselves in the foot and have more enemies than ATT. Verizon Wireless made it no secret that they would eventually move towards tiered data plans. It was just assumed that they would be reasonable about it, or keep it somewhat similar to how ATT did it. ATT tiered data: $25/month = 2GB/month ($10 for 1GB overage increments) $15/month = 200MB/month ($15 for 200MB overage increments) T-Mobile tiered data: $60/month = 10GB/month $30/month = 5GB/month $20/month = 2GB/month $10/month = 200MB/month You're throttled once you hit your limit Rumor has it on July 7th, Verizon will do this: $80/month = 10GB/month $50/month = 5GB/month $30/month = 2GB/month http://www.engadget.com/2011/06/20/verizon-tiered-data-plans-coming-july-7-starting-at-30/ To give you an idea, current Verizon customers are paying $30/month for unlimited. So basically, new customers are going to pay the same for a 2GB cap. At least ATT had the courtesy to drop it down $5. No word if you get throttled or if you incur overages. Verizon still hasn't said anything yet.
