Verizon Increases Price and Size of Its Data Plans, Adds Several New Features

Verizon is releasing a new set of data plans for smartphones that increase the amount of data you receive and the price you pay for it.

Most of the new plans point to a price increase of at least 10%, but also include more data. For example, if you used to get 1 GB of data for $ 30, now you get 2 GB for $ 35. You can find a full breakdown of all the new prices in the chart above, but here are the main ones:

  • Small: Now $ 35 / month for 2GB (was $ 30 / month for 1GB)
  • Medium: Now $ 50 / month for 4GB (was $ 45 / month for 3GB)
  • Large: Now $ 70 / month for 8GB (was $ 60 / month for 6GB)
  • X-Large: Now $ 90 / month for 16GB (was $ 80 / month for 12GB)
  • XX-Large: Now $ 110 / month for 24GB (was $ 100 / month for 18GB)

In addition to price increases, each plan is getting several new features. Verizon now has a renewal plan called Carryover, which carries unused data to the next month. Safe Mode is also a new feature where you can choose a dedicated plan that will keep you capped instead of paying the surplus if you accidentally go to the highlighted data for a month. For some weird reason, you will need to pay $ 5 a month to be restricted unless you use the two largest plans.

The new plans are available to new and existing customers right now, although they are available to current customers.
