16 Aug Verizon is bringing the hammer down on hardcore data hogs
Verizon is putting the hammer down on hardcore data hogs. Come this fall, if you’re a Verizon customer on an unlimited data plan who exceeds 100GB of data regularly, you can expect to be shut right off if you don’t cut it out or switch to a managed data plan. We’re not sure if Pokemon Go has anything to do with this, but we’re sure streaming videos is part of the problem.
Verizon says it will start sending out emails to small groups of customers asking them to migrate to one of its limited data plans, which top out at 100GB a month for $450. Verizon recently increased its unlimited data plan from just $30 for grandfathered customers to $50. That $400 gap probably has something to do with the crackdown.
