Verizon rivals AT&T by trimming prices on More Everything plan

The new savings apply to customers who opt for Verizon’s Edge monthly installment plan.

Verizon subscribers who need big buckets of data can now save more money via the carrier's More Everything plan.

Through the new budget-friendlier plan, customers who choose data buckets of 10GB or higher now pay an access fee of just $15 per month per smartphone line, down from the previously discounted price of $20. Verizon charges $100 a month for 10GB worth of data. So, for example, these cuts mean that a family of four people would now pay $160 each month as opposed to $180 previously.

There is one gotcha. The lower prices are good only with Verizon's Edge program, through which you pay a monthly installment fee for your devices in exchange for the option to upgrade anytime. Verizon subscribers who buy a subsidized phone through the usual two-year agreement are out of luck.

The $160 price tag for a family of four is not exactly a coincidence. AT&T has promoted its own Next installment plan with the same price for a family plan.
