I guess this one was sure to be coming, it was always just a matter of when.
Following in the footsteps of its main competitor, AT&T, Verizon may switch its data plans to a tiered structure starting on July 29th.
There’s no word on what size each bucket will have or what prices there will be, but expect something at least slightly resembling AT&T’s current $15 for 200MB, $25 for 2GB strategy.
Verizon could offer something completely different, but the truth is, they usually don’t.
They may offer additional intermediary tiers, which is something that many users have asked for from AT&T, but nothing is certain yet.
Anyway, it looks like unlimited mobile data will soon be just a distant memory.
