Verizon tells data hogs with unlimited service to change plans by February 16th, or get cut off
Verizon has sent out letters and we would imagine that most of them are targeted at unlimited customers who use 200GB of data or more every month. Still, there are some subscribers complaining that they have received the notice even though they are not close to the magic 200GB line. That is quite a lot of data, so we would imagine that most readers should not be concerned.
The new rules were instituted on January 5th. That happens to be the same day that Verizon officially ended offering two-year contracts to existing subscribers (new customers were already not offered two-year contracts since last August), and raised the activation and upgrade fee by 50% to $30.
