Verizon to bump pricing and add more data

And for subscribers on Verizon's largest data plans, the company will give away a new app that will keep customers from blowing past the cap, according to CNET. If Verizon really wanted to set off some fireworks it could have offered data at slightly faster, 3G speeds. You get a simple mobile experience that lets you do what you want, when you want and how you want. That's your choice too. They are trying to show you everything up front, like data, account, and bill in a real-time feed, along with other "personalized products and content just for you". There's The Data Hub as well, showing and allowing users to control data specifically. Go to Shop to check out your options when it comes to buying a new device.

This app includes On-Demand Support with a message center, with "in-app help that's there before you need it with immediate answers without calling for help".

- Simplified Bill: A clear and simple bill that explains what's changed from month-to-month. Do note that you can only carry data over for one month, so if you don't use all of last month's Carryover Data, it'll expire.

The company's larger "L", "XL" and "XXL" plans will all see $10 increases but also larger jumps in data.

Cnet reported that the nation's largest wireless carrier plans to increase the price of its monthly plans as well as upping the amount of data included in the plans. Do more. Save more.

Customers can choose from several data plans, now called "data sizes". It's free for plans with at least 16 gigabytes of data. That's the same as an overage, but it makes sense when you realize what Safety Mode really is. Used all your data allotment for the month? We've got your back with the new Safety Mode capability. This feature will slow down data speeds for the remainder of the billing cycle once a user reaches his monthly data limit, instead of charging him extra.

Clinton is leading Trump by half of a percentage point in Arizona, according to the RealClearPolitics average of several polls. Graham says Donald Trump's comments on accepting the Syrian regime "tells me he has no idea what that means for the region".


Verizon is also facing increased competition after Sprint saw the most growth among the four major wireless carriers in last month's American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI), and T-Mobile replaced VZW in the No. 1 spot.

The "XL" plan will go up by $10 to $90 a month, with customers receiving 16GB instead of 12GB.

Confirming a week of rumors, Verizon Wireless has notably shaken up the company's wireless data pricing and bumped plan allotments, while also unveiling a new roll over data option and a new almost-unlimited "safety mode" to avoid incurring overages.

Verizon also introduced a new My Verizon app that they seem very proud of. And in case you were wondering, all of the line access charges stay the same. Each plan includes unlimited talk and text, but requires an additional $20 per month access fee for each line of service in addition to any device payments.

Such an offering would essentially mark a return of unlimited data to Verizon, but with major caveats.
