The proverbial Axe was just dropped by Verizon. For years we have seen the writing on the wall and the reckoning is finally here. If you are an unlimited data user who actually uses what you pay for expect to be disconnected by Verizon starting August 31. This is all part of a major migration project. Verizon is trying to move the final unlimited data users to a limited data plan. Verizon will begin to notify users who they deem as having used too much data of what is to come and the options that remain starting tomorrow July 21. The options will be to either switch to a tiered data plan by August 31st or have the line terminated. You will then have the option to reactivate the line, but only if you start back up on a limited data plan. I think this is all a load of horse dung. If they want to do away with unlimited data plans just say hey we are officially abolishing unlimited data plans. You can't just shut someone down for using what they pay for! I am more than likely effected by this. I personally consume more than 50GB per month. My wife uses about 20GB per month on average. Reports indicate that 95% of all mobile data users use less than 5GB of data per month so you can see how Verizon would say that anything over 5GB is "extraordinary". I will personally have to take my business to another carrier if Verizon decides to shut down my lines. I have been with them for more than 10 years now. I have never missed a bill, and have purchased tens of thousands of dollars worth of equipment with them. It is kind of ridiculous that this is how they chose to treat some of their best customers. How does this make you feel. Is this something you totally expected. Should Verizon handle this situation differently? Honestly if they would just come out and say they are doing away with unlimited data I would understand that. I don't understand the notion they are keeping unlimited data just as long as you don't really use it as such. What are your thoughts. UPDATE: Verizon has informed the guys over at Droid-Life that this report is accurate. They will indeed notify a small group of customers who use the extraordinary amount of data that they will need to be on a new plan by August 31. UPDATE UPDATE: "Foxkat" has actually spoken with Technical support who informed him that users in the 20GB-30GB per month range will be the ones to get the axe. This will be a hard stop come August 31. The limit is also per line not collectively which means if you had 2 lines of UDP you could hit 40-60GB without seeing the boot. Since I average 70GB per month on two lines I may not be safe.
