Verizon Wireless still manages to have an unlimited monthly data plan - at least for 3G service. That same $30 per month plan could be coming for Verizon's 4G LTE network.

Verizon doesn't even have any 4G-ready smartphones yet, but we know it's only a matter of time until the HTC Thunderbolt finally gets a release date. According to Droid Life, the unlimited 4G plan will also cost only $29.99 per month, at first anyway. This could likely change once the network becomes more crowded, giving Verizon the chance to up prices.

Even though Droid Life credits this information to a "reliable source," there's still a possibility that this could be erroneous, and Verizon customers might end up with 4G service as an add-on package.

No word on when this will be announced officially...if ever.

  • Limited coverage ....

    If customers have to pay a premium for 4G, they should definitely get unlimited plans. The 4G coverage is very limited even within the test areas and that won't change for a couple of years.

  • If it's too good to be true...

    ...it probably is.

    Just wait for the big "catch" that'll come that changes all the rules.

    I doubt they would keep it at $30. I'm guessing $50.

    CLEARWIRE offers unlimited 4G for 45 per month, plus $5 for the lease of the 4g device for over 2 years; and to complete if a costumer cancel service before contract expires, CLEARWIRE only charge $40 for restocking fee for each device. Can VERIZON beat that ?? I do not think so, at least by now.... I think.
