Remember when Verizon extended the free mobile hotspot promotion to July 6th for all 4G LTE users? Yea, it might be because unlimited data on Verizon is coming to an end. Droid-Life has heard that July 7th will be the day that tiered data plans would take over for both tablet and phone users. They’ll be setup almost identically to their mobile broadband plans. Here’s the breakdown for phones:
- 2GB – $30/month
- 5GB – $50/month
- 10GB – $80/month
And for $20 more on each of those plans, you’ll get 2GB of additional data and the ability to use your phone as a mobile hotspot. Expensive stuff, no? For tablets, “data plans will now go to $30 for 2GB of data as well instead of $20 for 1GB of data that is currently available.” It’s summer and Verizon said it was coming. It’s just too bad it had to be sooner rather than later. You folks looking to switch better get a move on it now so that you’re grandfathered into unlimited data for at least another two years.
