Verizon Confirms New Price Hikes and Data Increases, Throttling, Carryover Data, New App, and More

....This morning, Verizon hosted an online-only press event to announce a bunch of new The Verizon Plan options, a redesigned app, and new features, like Rollover Carryover Data. We reported on all of this news through various stories over the past week, but Verizon has confirmed it all. As we exclusively reported last week, this all goes live tomorrow, July 7.

The details of everything are as follows.

First, Verizon is tweaking The Verizon Plan by raising prices and increasing data buckets. Funny note – during the opening of their online press event, they laughed at all of the early reports who suggested they were raising prices, as if they aren’t raising prices, except that they are raising prices. Jokes on who?

The new plans provide “at least 30% more data” even if they are now more expensive. The bang-for-your-buck ratio is what Verizon is really pushing here. For example, the “S” $30-1GB plan is now $35-2GB and the “XL” $80-12GB plan is now $90-16GB. So for just $5 or $10 more, you get at least an extra GB of data, if not more. The rest of the plans are increasing as well, all of which we reported on here. You can also take a look at the new structure in the image below.

If you want to jump on the new plans, you can. If you don’t want to, you don’t have to (“for now”). And in case you were wondering, all of the line access charges stay the same......





HIGHer......than a kite?!

Wait a minute... I thought prices were supposed to go DOWN because they were no longer subsidizing phones every 2 years.

What about line discounts? We have 2 phones not under contract and by carrying 10Gb of data we get a
$25/month/line. If we drop under 10Gb's I think the discount drops to $10/month/line.

BTW: We never use more than 4Gb's/month.

Verizon is Evil. Yet I wish they would install FiOS in my community to give Comcast a run for its money.
