Verizon to End Unlimited Data Packages? ‘Fraid So…

I know, it’s probably not the most shocking headline you’ve read all day, but it seems that it might be coming true. And, coming true as soon as this summer.

According to Reuters, the standard $30/month unlimited data plans Verizon Wireless customers enjoy will no longer be available.  Similar to AT&T’s current offering, it appears that Verizon will also offer tiered options that will no doubt cost customers a bundle if they go over their allotted amounts.

One bonus feature? Word is that Verizon will offer family data plans – allowing multiple lines to share a pooled data package for one monthly fee. Think family plans that share minutes, but for your data instead.

“I think it’s safe to assume that at some point you are going to have mega-plans (for data) and people are going to share that mega-plan based on the number of devices within their family,” said Verizon CFO Fran Shammo. “That’s just a logical progression.”
