I figured I would start a thread/discussion in reference to the Verizon CEO, Lowell McAdams, saying "that he likes it when something different is tried in the industry." Link to news story here: http://news.cnet.com/8301-1035_3-57577842-94/verizon-ceo-says-hes-open-to-dropping-contracts/
He says that consumers need to ask for the change if we want it. This is because T-Mobile has decided to get rid of contracts and offer unlimited everything plans. All plans offer unlimited Talk & Text. Data coverage as follows:
- 500MB Plan: First Line $50, Second line $30, each addtional $10 - Includes up to 500 MB of high-speed data (after which you are then throttled)
- 2GB Plan: First Line $50, Second line $30, each addtional $10 - Addtional $10 per line added for 2GB of data. Includes up to 2GB of high-speed data (after which you are then throttled)
- Unlimited Plan: First Line $50, Second line $30, each addtional $10 - Addtional $20 per line added for unlimited data. Includes up to unlimited high-speed data (no slowed speeds, also Includes up to 500 MB of Smartphone Mobile HotSpot with additional data for tethering sold separately)
These plans are awesome!! I currently pay $190 after taxes and after employment discounts for 3 lines with only 2 with data. I would save at least $30 a month without any employment discounts per month, more with them included.
I for one enjoy my Verizon service (the network) it works pretty much any where in the USA with little to no service connection loss.
But with these new plans and the ability to bring any phone I want, this is looking very appealing. T-Mobile has done away with phone discounts, will allow customers to "finance" the price of a new phone or allows them to bring any GSM (unlocked) phone at anytime on their network. This to say the least is amazing.
PLEASE VERIZON WIRELESS CUSTOMERS LET OUR VOICES BE HEARD AND GET THIS PLAN BROUGHT OVER TO VERIZON!!!!
Simply state The change you would like Verizon to make to plans (no contract offerings).
