Verizon Caps Data Usage with Tiered Pricing

By June 22, 2011

Measuring Broadband Usage

Verizon has confirmed a report originally appearing in the Android blog site Droid Life which reported the provider's switch to tiered data pricing and usage caps.   Data plans will start at 2B for $30/month, 5G for $50/month, and 10GB for $80/month.  Using more data than your subscription limit will cost $10/GB. Tethering will cost an additional $20/GB for an extra 2GB of data.

Sprint Nextel is the only large mobile broadband carrier that has not implemented a usage based pricing model.  Sprint  has previously cited the simplicity of its plans, but indicated that they may consider changing to a data tier pricing model in the future.
