Verizon’s 3G data pricing is set to receive some modifications starting tomorrow. Tiered plans are going to be in effect, which was to be expected as it’s becoming somewhat of a trend among carriers.
So here are Verizon’s new data plans for smartphones. If you opt for Pay as you go data pricing, that will set you back $1.99/MB. Clearly this is a good option only for those who very, very rarely use mobile data. $15 per month gets you 150 MB, but there’s a catch. If you go over 150 MB, you’ll be charged for another chunk of 150 MB – another $15. And so on. Keep this in mind, because the unlimited plan is $29.99, so if you’re using more than 300 MB each month, that’s certainly the one to go for.
Verizon’s pricing for mobile broadband and tablets is as follows: $20 for 1 GB (subsequently also $20 for each 1 GB chunk – and this plan is only available for tablets), $35 for 3 GB, $50 for 5 GB and $80 for 10 GB. All of the last three plans will make you pay $10 for each subsequent 1 GB you use.
The table below should make everything clear:
