Verizon modified prepaid data plans

verizonAs of June 6, Verizon has modified its prepaid data plans, making them more appealing to the customers who did not buy the unlimited plan for $80 a month this past April. If you can’t afford or don’t need this upper-tier plan, Verizon’s newly revised plans might fit your bill.

According to The Verge, the new plans consist of 3GB for $40 a month, 7GB for $50, or 10GB for $60. Before June 6, these same plans were 2GB for $40 a month, 5GB for $50, and 10GB for $70.

Unfortunately, the price cut does not come without drawbacks. All of the new plans are limited to video streams of 480p, with the possibility of tethering. The unlimited plan does not include tethering. 480p is not excellent quality, but if you’re not big on streaming video, it might be worth saving a bit of money each month.
