Verizon will disconnect your line if you use “extraordinary” amounts of data

Let’s face it, there’s a special kind of allure to unlimited data and all the perks that come along with it. Well, it seems like #Verizon might have had enough of its users who use too much data. According to a report that surfaced yesterday, which was confirmed by Verizon shortly, the carrier will disconnect users who are using “extraordinary” amounts of data. For reference, this would mean significantly over 100GB on one device.

Here’s what Verizon had to say – “These users are using data amounts well in excess of our largest plan size (100 GB). While the 100 GB plan is designed to be shared across multiple users, each line receiving notification to move to the new Verizon Plan is using well in excess of that on a single device.”

The carrier will notify these users via mail and a standard letter informing them of their overages. Beyond this, they will have until August 31 to sign up to The Verizon Plan, which offers data in different tiers. In essence, as a punishment for over usage, customers will have to switch to a tiered data plan or face disconnection of their line. Verizon will give users 50 days after August 31 to reconnect their line, so it’s not the end of the world after August 31. However, the only way to get their connection back will be to get on The Verizon Plan.

Are you one of these users that the carrier is talking about? What do you make of this?

  1. I think it’s crap! AT&T is now,nack to offering unlimited data as is Sprint. Why do we have to have limited data? And no, I don’t have unlimited now. I wish I did! I’ve been on limited ever since the first year they took my unlimited away. I’ve begged them, even offered to pay more, fory unlimited back because as an OTR driver who only goes home once a month, I’d love to be able to listen to things like Pandora, or even watch Netflix, which is useless to me because I AM limited.
