Verizon Moving to Tiered Data Plans



Engadget reports that Verizon will soon be moving to tiered data plans in the next month, much like AT&T has done. The reason they are doing this is because of a data usage boom in smartphones. The other day I saw an article that said Droid users utilize an average of five times more data than other smartphone users.

T-Mobile is keeping to their "unlimited" to 5GB soft limit and 10GB hard limit (they publish a 5GB limit for their unlimited plan, but supposedly you can hit 10GB until you have your data speeds limited. Sprint has similar limits for their 3G phones, while their new 4G phones will be allowed to legitimately use unlimited data (although you pay a $10 a month premium for it currently).
