The average revenue per account was $159.67 in the first quarter, up 6.3% year-over-year. Half of Verizon's customers are using the More Everything plan. According to the same report, 37% of Verizon's customers pay between $101-$200 a month, and 14% pay more than $200 monthly. Compare that to AT&T where 41% of its customers spend between $101-$200 a month, but only 5% go over the $200 mark.
At Sprint, 39% pay between $51 and $100, while 47% have a monthly bill that falls between $101-$200. At Sprint, no one has a bill exceeding $200. T-Mobile offers the lowest pricing according to the survey. 25% have a bill between $25 and $50. In the $51 to $100 range is 43% of T-Mobile customers, while 27% pay between $101 and $200 each month.
Based on the number of subscribers, Verizon has the most customers paying over $100 each month, followed by AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile.

We pay $100 on T-Mobile for a four-person family plan. It's a pretty good deal...

As one half of the US telecom monopoly, it is a reasonable assumption that they paid off a lot of politicians, so they got a lot of government contracts. The government contracts often are a lot more money than what Verizon charges the public.

I have no problem paying over 100 dollars for unlimited data through VZW. You get what you pay for and I get the fastest 4G and best coverage where I frequent. ATT, T-mobile and Sprint has if any service only 2G in the small towns I frequent, where as VZW is 4G baby!!!!

I'm not happy about what I pay with Verizon, but when I build a similar plan on T Mobile it ends up being more. I believe Sprint worked out higher as well. They all advertise these low rates, but they ignore the fact you have to add $25+ for each device on each line (unless you bring your own device which is not free either), another $10 per line for insurance (if you want it, but these things are too expensive and too unreliable to not have it) and in New York another %18 in taxes. So when AT&T says $160 per month they really mean plus $100 for the devices and plus $40 for insurance and plus $28.80 for taxes or $328.80 per month (unless I am missing something). That's more than double the $160 they advertise. No I haven't built a plan AT&T's site because the above math has discouraged me to bother. In the end they are all rather expensive, it's just a matter of how they spin it. Of note, every time I have Verizon work up a quote for the "More" plan, it ends up being more than I pay now with less data. Until they force it, they can keep it. Guess "More" means more profit for Verizon, not more of anything good for the customer.
