Rumors have been circulating that Verizon is about to take unlimited data out back and bury it next to Spike by the big Oak tree. But now it seems that it’s all but a pretty much done deal as more information is surfacing, and it’s coming soon.
Engadget has been tipped off that the new data tiers will be starting as early as the end of this month and if history tells us anything (which it does quite frequently), then we should expect similar pricing to what AT&T has cultivated with its $25 for 2GB, $15 for 200MB. If true, this will put a quick stop to any data intensive applications that you currently use, unless you're willing to pay a higher premium.
While it is possible that Verizon could come out of left field and offer completely different packages, more than likely, they will be close, or possibly better, to remain competitive to what AT&T is currently providing.
Verizon has stated on numerous occasions that they foresee data buckets instead of “unlimited data” as the future, especially with their upcoming rollouts of LTE. So, say goodbye to data heavy applications if you enjoy putting food on the table as you can expect Verizon is only implementing this to increase revenue, not to save you money.
