Verizon cuts price to share 10GB of data by 20%

Verizon cuts price to share 10GB of data by 20%
Starting today, Verizon cut the price of 10GB of shared data by 20% to $80. The pre-sale price was $100. The nation's largest carrier also reduced the price to share 15GB of the sweet stuff, from $110 to $100. Verizon also raised by 50%, the amount of data that families can share for $40, from 2GB to 3GB. This was in response to AT&T's price cut announced Friday. The carrier cut the price of a 6GB shared data plan by $10 or 13%, to $70 a month.

Despite the price cuts by Verizon and AT&T, Sprint remains the cheapest option for shared data among the nation's four top carriers. Sprint is offering 20GB of shared data for just $100. That happens to be double the 10GB of data that T-Mobile allows you to split for the same price.

In addition to cutting the price of data, Verizon has announced that it will award a $150 bill credit for each customer moving his phone number from his current carrier to Verizon. For a family of four, that would mean a $600 credit that could be applied toward the monthly bill. While the offer is for a limited time, a company spokesman said that no ending date for the program has been decided on.

$70/month - Unlimited 4G LTE data, Minutes, and Messaging. T-Mobile is the best for me.

Unfortunately they don't offer that plan anymore. It's $80, but it does come with 5GB of tethering. But I still love my Sprint SERO-P plan $50 unlimited data/text/mobile to mobile/nights and weekends and 500 minutes to/from landline numbers during daytime on weekdays. There is almost no plan that can match this old grandfathered plan. And yes I do have great LTE/Spark on Sprint where I live and work.

$70 a month gets me 80GB of data shared with one other line on AT&T. Needless to say, having LTE in buildings is so damn beautiful.

According to ATT, an 80GB family share runs $300/month.

T-Mobile is not for you. Simple as that. It works flawlessly in my city. Even faster than Verizon and AT&T in 4G LTE data speeds.

This started November 1st. Also to receive the 150$ bill credit you do NOT need to sign up for edge. You need to port your number in and buy a 4G smartphone from Verizon to qualify.

Yeah, I came here to hand out the "late pass", but you beat me to it...

Regardless if Sprint offers the cheapest rate it's not worth the misery depending on which area you live in. Coming from VZW I have experienced more dropped calls and slow data speeds. Needless to say I will be porting my number due to the $150 credit. Plus XLTE is in my area. Last year I did a speed test on my 5S and got a staggering 77mb down. This was before XLTE was deployed in my area. I should average roughly 40-50mb download speeds with peaks around 80mb. Now with the 10gb data plans are cut by 20% my wife and I will go on Edge for the 64gb and 128gb 6 Plus's. I currently have a 6 Plus 64gb in silver. Willing to sell it if someone is interested. All I have to say the grass ain't always greener on the other side.

Too bad it's worth only about the $300 he's offering in real-life. Reality Distortion Field is synonymous with Apple products these days...

The 6gb plan did not change...it's no longer available. It goes from 4gb ($70) to 10gb ($80).

The 6GB plan quoted in the article is for AT&T.

Good call...my brain apparently skipped a sentence.
