We saw a bit of uproar yesterday in regards to Verizon Wireless preparing to begin pushing users off the grandfathered unlimited data plans. Just to recap, it is looking like Verizon will switch users from the unlimited 3G data plans after they introduce the shared data plans and as users move from 3G to 4G LTE devices. The switchovers are expected to begin sometime in mid-summer. Of course, the key here — so far this is all unofficial reports mixed with some speculation. That being said, Verizon has come forward with an official statement to help clear things up. You can read the statement (in entirety) below…
As we have stated publicly, Verizon Wireless has been evaluating its data pricing structure for some time. Customers have told us that they want to share data, similar to how they share minutes today. We are working on plans to provide customers with that option later this year.
We will share specific details of the plans and any related policy changes well in advance of their introduction, so customers will have time to evaluate their choices and make the best decisions for their wireless service. It is our goal and commitment to continue to provide customers with the same high value service they have come to expect from Verizon Wireless.
