Mobile carrier Verizon Wireless is working on doubling the size of smartphone data plans in order to compete for customers, and apart from that, there is also another side benefit – to save on capital spending for older wireless technology – at least that is what Verizon Communications Chief Financial Officer Fran Shammo mentioned. Currently the largest US wireless operator, Verizon recently increased the amount of data it throws inside smartphone plans, touching 4GB from 2GB previously at the same price point of $30 monthly. The whole idea behind this is to net a growing number of customers over to their Long Term Evolution (LTE) network in an attempt to lower their need for capital investments in third-generation (3G) technology. Sounds like a win-win situation to us, how about you?
Several of Verizon’s current offer would mean their data plans are cheaper compared to what Ma Bell offers, where AT&T’s 4GB plan costs $45 a month, which is a good 50% more than what Verizon charges for the similar number of GBs. Does this bit of news cement your decision to go ahead with Verizon in your next phone purchase?
