Verizon Raising Unlimited Data Prices By $20 On May 15 For Some

If I’m reading this correctly, those with unlimited data who managed to dodge the fee increase last year are now forced to face those higher costs. At this rate, you’ll have to sign over your youngest child to keep unlimited data with Verizon.

On November 15 of last year, Verizon raised unlimited data plan pricing by $20, from $29.99 to $49.99. According to sources of ours, that was only "phase 1" of Big Red’s plan to price unlimited data users out of their plans and features and into a tiered option. We still have two more phases to go, with the next starting next month. "Phase 2" will kick off on May 15 as a similar $20 increase to what we saw in November for lines that are out of contract that weren’t affected by the initial November 15 price increase.
