Verizon Tiered Data Plans

We all knew it was coming, and now we have a bit of the details -- and they aren't as bad as anyone thought.  As you can see above, Verizon will still be offering unlimited data to 3G smartphone customers, and they have added in a very light version that should appeal to the people who aren't using a ton of data each month -- you know, the normal people.  What's not quite as appealing is the 3G Tablet plan breakdown, but with no word from other carriers that could be as good or better than anything the other carriers are offering.  The short version for what we're told will start Oct. 28:

3G smartphone plans

  • $15 per month for 150 MB
  • $15 for each 150 MB of overage
  • $29.99 unlimited data

3G Tablet plans

  • $20 for 1 GB (with $20 per GB overage)
  • $35 for 3 GB (with $10 per GB overage)
  • $50 for 5 GB (with $10 per GB overage)
  • $80 for 10 GB (with $10 per GB overage)
