Verizon officially welcomes tiered data plans
You might have heard that Verizon is moving from unlimited to tiered data plans and today the plans went live on Big Red. The new monthly caps and prices apply for all phones, but some 4G LTE devices won't be able to make use of the cheapest one:

Monthly cap..............Price
75MB.........................$10
2GB............................$30
5GB............................$50
10GB..........................$80

The overage rates stand at $10 for 1GB of exceeded data on any plan. Those of you on an unlimited data plan remain unaffected by the changes, but new users will have to pick one of the tiered plans. To check data usage, users can just dial #data to get a free text message with information about used data.

Additionally, new pricing for using mobile hotspot on your cell phone kicks in on top of your data plan at an additional $20 for 2GB worth of tethering traffic. What are your thoughts about the new data plans? Feel free to share in the comments below.
