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.
