Verizon Increasing Costs of Grandfathered Unlimited Data Plans

mobile-phone-791644_640Verizon plans to add $20/month onto the grandfathered unlimited data plans for existing customers.

Verizon is planning to raise the price of unlimited data plans from $29.99 to $49.99 per month. The company confirmed the move to CNNMoney on Thursday morning.

It’s yet another sign the company’s trying to force people to let go of their highly prized plans that remain only because they were grandfathered in.

The unlimited data is only part of a cell phone bill. Talking and texting are extra. Right now if you’re on Verizon’s 450 plan, that costs $59.99 per month. Add the new higher rate for unlimited data, the total monthly cost will look more like $109.99, plus fees.
