While at first the LTE is going to be a novelty to some, Verizon obviously has intentions of making it widespread and getting as many users on it as possible, so it would only make sense to make the pricing comparable to 3G.
I don't see them charging an additional money for 4G. Look at what they did with 4G data cards. New data plans that were actually $9.99 cheaper than the pre-existing 3g data cards. Oddly enough the existing 3G usb data cards can not get the 5GB / $50.00 or the 10GB / $80.00 that were released. Only 3G data devices that can get these plans are the Mifi and the 5-Spot.

I love how everyone is asking these questions like any of us have answers.... Anything people say right now is a rumor, no matter where there 'source' is, until Verizon comes out and tells us.
So until, we can all just hope lol

The $15 premium is a new one, which in a weird way almost lends some credibility to it. But people are basically getting that from what Sprint did, ignoring that Sprint was already way cheaper and had to raise prices to recover the subsidy for very expensive devices (and, by the way, they appear to be adding on that $10 for all new subscribers).
A $15 premium would seem to lack common sense on multiple fronts. I don't think VZW is stupid. How much more expensive is VZW, really, on average? $5-$10? They aren't upping that another $15.
