Recently it was reported that Verizon WirelessÂ wants to give an ultimatumÂ to the folks who are still attached to their unlimited data plan and using “extraordinary” amounts of data per month. NowÂ we have anÂ idea of what an “extraordinary” amount of data is.
Verizon has confirmed to Ars TechnicaÂ that it’s focusing on a “small group” of subscribers that use 100GB or more of data per month. Those customers willÂ be given until August 31 to switch to a new, tieredÂ Verizon Plan.
Verizon states that it has a 100GB data plan, but that it’s meantÂ toÂ be spread out among multiple lines and not usedÂ by just a single line. The company says they are contacting subscribers that are using more than 100GB per month on their unlimited data plan.
Big Red didn’t confirm what would happen if those subscribers don’t switch to a Verizon Plan by August 31. Earlier reports suggested that Verizon would simply cut them off altogether butÂ give them an option to reactivate the line on a new Verizon Plan within 50 days.
How much data do you use?
