PC World is reporting that Verizon may follow in the foot steps of Rival AT&T; Wireless and do tiered data plan pricing. PC World spoke with Verizon CFO John Killian yesterday who (watch this phrasing) “Suggested that Verizon might move from Unlimited Data Plans to Tiered Data Plans, on 4G”
What does this really mean?
First off, Killian only suggested that Verizon MAY go to tiered data plans.
Killian also said that this would be for 4g, better known on Verizon as LTE, which is still at 10-16 months down the road.
Killian also did not say whether the Unlimited plan would go away.
At this point in time, although Killian did not rule out tiered pricing, it’s all conjecture on the interpretation of the comment to PC World’s Sara Jaccobbson.
However, as will all changes in Verizon plans, if you’re in it now or get in it before the change you will be grandfathered into the plan you are in.
