Verizon Wireless Forcing Customers To Drop Unlimited Data

Attention Verizon Wireless customers! If you currently have unlimited data, you may not have it for long. The company is giving customers the option of switching to a capped data plan or risk getting their phone service disconnected.

Company spokesperson Kelly Crummey clarified what’s happening in a statement to Ars Technica saying,

Because our network is a shared resource and we need to ensure all customers have a great mobile experience with Verizon, we are notifying a small group of customers on unlimited plans who use more than 200GB a month that they must move to a Verizon Plan by February 16, 2017.

Verizon made a similar move in August 2016, although at that time it targeted users who topped 500GB of wireless data a month.

Competitor AT&T opted to also increase rates, a move Verizon Wireless claims they are trying to avoid.
