Verizon will have new 3G data plans starting tomorrow
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:
