wasn't there talk about Verizon going to a tiered data package once they get LTE up and running?
This seems counter-intuitive for them to come out with an "unlimited" plan when they are going to be rolling out tiered data plans. Unless they have ditched that plan and are just going with the "eff-it, give the people what they want" strategy.

Am I missing something here? Isn't the Sprint all you can eat plan $ 69.99? How does $99.00 compete with $69.99? I know Verizon is better and that is why I have them but I don't get the wow factor of this story.
"Verizon's current postpaid Nationwide Talk & Text unlimited plan goes for $89.99 with a two-year contract. In L.A. and San Diego, however, Verizon is offering that service for $69.99 per month. The addition of the carrier's $29.99 per month unlimited smartphone data plan brings the total cost of unlimited talking, texting and smartphone data to $99.99 per month--the same price as Sprint's Simply Everything offering, which includes limitless talking, texting, data and other services. T-Mobile USA also offers unlimited talk, text and data for $99 per month."
In fact, I will even ask further about why is this a story about a "Test" market? Verizon already has unlimited talk for $69.00 and if you add the data pack at 29.99 you get $ 99.00 all you can eat. This has been available for some time.
