A holdout against the free data trend has given in. Beginning today, Verizon customers will be able to get unlimited data plans.
Here’s how the plans work; customers may keep their current plans or opt for an 80 dollar monthly plan, for a single line, with unlimited data, talking and texting. Customers must agree to AutoPay and paper-free billing. Families can also pay $45 per line for four lines.
Verizon has been losing ground to Sprint and T-Mobile, so they opted to offer customers what they want. Verizon's plan delivers high definition video and lets you use your smartphone as a wireless hotspot for up to 10GB of data at no additional charge. T-Mobile and Sprint limit their mobile video streams to a lower resolution.
Now AT&T remains the only provider not offering free data to all customers. We bet that will change soon enough. Source: USA Today
