Tiered pricing plans will most likely be in effect for Verizon's LTE 4G network

"...milking Verizon with..." - how many metaphors would you like to mix? That phrase must be from another language.

This is expected. Why should a heavy user pay as much as a light user and nice versa. I am actually pretty happy about this. I just want to see what the pricing is on all this. It will be interesting to see how the mobile will work as well. This should pretty much make it to where everyone will start having smart phones from this point going forward. If you look at the required $9.99 for 3G multimedia phones, that was the start to all this. Now, just require it on every device and you make it where you can have a smart phone that can have a data plan starting at $10 a month and up and there you go. Can you say the begining of the end of non-smartphones?

This could be either a good thing or a bad thing. Good in the sense that people who use less pay less while heavy users pay a little more. The bad is if the prices are greedy like paying $30 for only 250mb. It costs less to transmit 1mb over 4g than 3G. Most likely prices will start off extremely high to please stock holders but guaranteed to backfire. I foresee class action lawsuits, especially when I read the comments written from others on other websites.
