Verizon will disconnect unlimited data customers unless they choose to move to a paid plan. Verizon users will have to decide by August 31 if they decide to stay with the service and pay overage fees or be disconnected completely.
Verizon has stopped offering unlimited data to new mobile customers ever since 2011, but some users have succeeded to hold on to the old plans. Well, no more. The company is looking to disconnect the clingy customers and make them pay for using the huge amount of data. The move is explained by the company’s desire to give all users the best experience possible, as the network is a shared resource.
Verizon is now looking to notify all people using more than 100GB of data per month that they should look into two options. The first one would be to change their plan to a data package that requires paying fees. And the second one, and not really in favor of the company either, is to have their service disconnected.
For users who want to stick to Verizon’s services, there is only one plan providing an extraordinary amount of data. The 100GB plan, although more than enough to fit nearly everyone’s needs, costs $450 per month. Charging such a massive sum of money each month will most likely have some customers turning to other services of this kind. However, big data plans are targeted towards households with multiple inhabitants that share a subscription.
Verizon will disconnect unlimited data customers if they don’t switch to a new data scheme. However, they can reactivate their account within 50 days by going for a limited plan. About 99 percent of the company’s clients have plans with limited data.
If you are one of Verizon’s Wireless customers, you should expect to get a text message or an email telling you to sign up for a new plan if you want to continue using their services. If you do not switch to a new plan by August 31, click here and reactivate your accounts by purchasing one of their plans.
