Verizon Unlimited Data Dies for Good July 7

Well we knew it was coming, but now we have a date: Verizon is moving to tiered data plans starting July 7th. The prices are $30/50/80 for 2GB/5GB/10GB plans, and bump up to $50/70/100 for 4GB/7GB/12GB for tethered plans.

The plans do not differentiate between 3G and 4G. Customers who currently have an unlimited data plan should be able to keep it, but there's no word yet on whether you'll be able to renew your contract or upgrade to a new device and retain the unlimited plan. [DroidLife]

DISCUSSION

Wow, and I thought AT&Ts tiers were brutal for data. At $100/month tethered you may as well get a usb 3g/LTE connection >.> Assuming this is for their phones only. And if it's for all data then I am laughing hard right now.

Any word on grandfathering people in or are they going to force convert people to new plans? I could sense a class action / lots of contract breaking loopholes for people to jump ship. Just changing it from Unlimited to Limited is grounds to break your contract.

It's a shame consumerist isn't a gawker sister site anymore :D You learn so damn much about things like this!
