Verizon Preps for Tiered Data Plans and New Family Plans (Maybe This Summer)
Earlier this week, Verizon revealed at Reuters Global Technology Summit that they may make an official announcement this summer regarding their switch to Tiered Data Plans. They also shared that they are working out some new Family Data Plans to make the transition away from unlimited data plans easier. Chief Financial Officer Fran Shammo told the Reuters said,
Verizon was careful to keep the details and the time-frame vague, so we will keep a vigilant watch to keep you guys informed.
We had individual minutes for individual users. Then we eventually got to what we call family share where everyone in the family shares the same minutes. I think it's safe to assume that at some point you are going to have mega-plans (for data) and people are going to share that mega-plan based on the number of devices within their family. That's just a logical progression.
