In the last few months, AT&T and Verizon have both been matching each other's policies. First it was the cheaper unlimited calling plans, then it was the increased ETFs. Now rumor has it that Verizon will be
moving to limited smartphone data plans
similar to AT&T's new model. Sources are saying the change could happen as soon as this month.
If we had to guess, Big Red will probably try to match AT&T's fees for data. So we might be looking at $25 for 2GB, and $15 for 200MB. Verizon is widely regarded as having one of the best data networks in the US, but if people find themselves limited in how much data they can use, will they still be so beloved?
When AT&T made the changeover, those with unlimited plans were grandfathered in, allowing them to keep those plans. Verizon will probably have to do the same. If you've been thinking about getting a smartphone with the current unlimited data plan, this might be a good time.
