Verizon with lower 3G data plan prices
Now that the HP Mini notebook has come, it is more than natural that Verizon might need to revise and optimize their 3G EVDO data plans. DSLReports says that the carrier is now working to increase the limit of its $40 plan from 50 MB to 250 MB. In addition, the overage charge per megabyte should soon be down to 10 cents, instead of the 25 cents you pay now. Subscribers with the $60 plan will also benefit from the changes. Their monthly limit will remain 5 GB, but the overage charge per megabyte will drop from 25 cents to 5 cents.

Actully Sprint overage charges are .05 Cents per MB over your 5Gb monthly and Sprint has offered that since they went to the 5GB plan

Att.com states: Additional data $0.00048/KB That works out to $0.49 a megabyte. Yes, Sprint is only $0.05 per megabyte over 5GB, but there is a reason customers are fleeing Sprint even with their very competitive pricing. AT&T and Verizon Wireless grow by over 1.5 million customers a piece last quarter. Sprint loses over 900,000. Sure, go to Sprint and get your helping of poor service topped with horrible customer service.

I don't see how that title makes any sense, "Verizon with lower 3G data plan prices." What price is getting lower? Overage rates decreasing and the lower tiered plan increasing in allowance says nothing about prices dropping... They had my hopes up too, I thought they heard something I didn't...

It technically is lower cause if your price plan has not changed.... Guess what your paying? The old rate. Rate plans don't just pertain to the monthy service cost, it to applies to overage as well as MB. It just so happens the monthly did not change.
