In a June 17 article on Bloomberg Businessweek, Verizon has indicated that the company may follow AT&T Inc. in introducing tiered pricing and eliminating unlimited data plans this year. This comes as the company "moves to its faster fourth-generation network technology," the article says.
The company isn't offering up details yet of what sort of pricing and plans it will be offering. However, the bottom line for consumers is clear. Being a Verizon customer is likely to get more expensive for most people.
Honestly, I'm not even really certain why anyone is bothering to say "may" about this. Of course, Verizon is going to follow AT&T's lead. They are the largest mobile-phone carrier in the U.S., not to mention customers are locked into two-year contracts. What are customers going to do if they implement this change? Leave? Breaking contract is expensive, and Verizon offers better coverage in many areas than most, if not all, of its competitors.
