Verizon to boost data, raise prices
Good news, Verizon will give you more data.
Bad news you'll pay more for it.
CNET's own Roger Ten reports Verizon will revise its plans.
They will be more expensive but you'll get a data boost.
Every plan will increase to one gigabyte to six gigabytes depending on the plan, prices will increase from $5 to $10 per month.
Verizon's plans are branded as sizes from X to X X L. Here's how it all breaks out.
caution, numbers ahead.
The S plan will cost $35 with two gigabytes of data.
The M plan gets four gigabytes of data for $50.
The L plan will have eight gigabytes for $70, the XL plan moves to 50 gigabytes for $90.
The XXL plan will give you a whooping 24 gigabytes for $110 per month.
CNET is also reporting these plans will include a new feature called Safety Mode.
When you go over your data cap, you will still be able to connect but at slower speeds.
That would avoid overage fees.
Safety Mode cost $5 extra for those not on an XL or XXL plan.
This feat will be managed by a new version of the My Verizon app.
Verizon will also introduce a new rollover data program called carryover data.
Current customers will be able to opt into these new plans and rates.
Verizon is expected to make an official announcement soon.
That's it for this tech news update.
