Leaked memos confirm Verizon's tiered data ambitions

Summary:An internal Verizon email sent to retailers breaks down the company's tiered data upcoming plans. So long, unlimited data.

In case you were not entirely convinced by previous reports on Verizon's intent to give unlimited data plans the axe, look no further than this latest bit of proof.

The documents, obtained by AndroidCentral, confirm much of the previous speculation, which, all told, seems to be pretty bad news for consumers. Here are some of the important bits, many of which have been reported previously:

  • The pricing: $30 for 2GB, $50 for 5GB, $80 for 10GB. Overages will cost you $10 per GB.
  • Customers already signed up for Verizon's $29.99 unlimited plan will be grand fathered in after the new changes are enforced. (But for how long?)
  • New Verizon customers that jump on board before July 7th will still have access to the unlimited plan. Anyone that signs up after will be out of luck.

With July 7th drawing near, this gives you two weeks to sign up with the current plans. Better get moving.
