Verizon double data promo plans go live again
If you’re hugnry for data, Verizon Wireless might be your best pick now as the carrier has brought back its double data allowance while keeping the price. 

Verizon now offers 4GB of data for $30, while 10 gigs of high-speed 4G LTE will run you $50. Big Red also offers bundles of data and mobile hotspot functionality for $50 a month for 6 gigs of data and $70 for a massive 12 gigs of data. 

Now, we have tested it with a couple of phones like the Motorola Droid 4 and the double data offer seemingly appears for all devices. We’re not sure whether it’s here to stay for the short or long term, but something tells us it will be gone soon, so you’d better use while it’s there.

Thanks, James!

No sprint is. Verizon is where you go for great service.

Sprint is the slowest of the 4 major nationwide carriers, so for someone who actually wants to have a chance of using more than a couple gigabytes per month without tethering should look elsewhere. Same goes for the companies that use its network (Virgin, Boost, etc)

Dude they aren't that slow.They have 4g and pretty ok coverage. That is mute though because its a fact they offer more data then version. You can't argue that. So if you are data hungry sprint offers more.

Dude, my AT&T iPhone 4S is faster than any "4G" device on Sprint. It is noticeably diffidence. I had the HTC Vivid which functioned like LTE in a 3G(HSPA+) area.

As for data most people do not use enough to warrant unlimited. Hell if you people did abuse the connection then we may still have unlimited.

It really depends on the area for speeds but its a mute point because sprint offer more data then verizon so if your data hungry sprint is better in that area.

Well, I do know you just butchered the English language. Secondly, they disconnect you, yeah that's right, they disconnect your account permanently for using your phone on other towers for more than 50% of the month.... And they roam on VZW towers. Good luck:)

They should really just keep this their normal plans!! And they need to add a $15 2gb plan. Or 1gb without the promotion. But the promotion should be the norm.

That $70 deal for 12 GB of 4G data is a great deal.

That is just under $6 a GB, much less than the $10 for each marginal GB.

I have Sprint I rooted my Samsung GS2 and tether it once I get home or when I travel both myself and my wife tether our computer to my phone. We have used more then 15gb of data a month since I rooting my phone four months ago and Sprint hasn't told me anything how much do I pay a month $85 why? because I have an employee discount and because I work the system LIKE A BOSS! FYI My average download speeds are 6-9 Megs down & 1.5 up Here In Los Angeles CA TOP THAT

How about if Verizon cannot fix their network to keep up with demand, they recruit less customers instead of punishing and robbing the current customers? Thieves!!

Verizon, I hope you run this promotion when the iPhone(6)(5) comes out. I know you and your sales people are pushing Android, but give "us" a break.

I bought me the Samsung Galaxy Nexus like 10 days ago...I'm SO glad I came across this article. I called up Verizon and they changed my Data Plan from 2GB to 4GB for the same price of $30. Sweet!!
