Over the past week, it's been rumored that Verizon would be making some changes to their Verizon Plan, with a time frame of this week set for the changes to take place. While the initial leak that went out was focused on Verizon getting ready to introduce carryover data while highlighting some new plan changes, a rumor from earlier this morning actually lays out the details of those changes, which include increases in data for Verizon's S, M, L, XL, and XXL packages, alongside an increase in the monthly plan price for each of them. Following up on this morning's rumor, it seems that Verizon's data package price increases may actually be set to take place this week, as Verizon will be holding an online conference tomorrow at 1 PM Eastern to talk about how customers are getting "complete control" over their wireless plans.
Verizon hasn't shared any specific details on what it will unveil tomorrow but there is a possibility that the conference could be about the official conformation of the data increases and other new changes that have been rumored for the past week. With availability rumored to be opening up sometime this week, customers would end up seeing prices starting at $35 a month for 2GB of data on the S package, going up from there to 4GB a month at $50, then to 8GB for $70, 16GB for $90, and finally 24GB for $110. In addition to the data and price increases that may be discussed tomorrow, the carryover data could potentially be a part of tomorrow's announcement, which would allow customers to take their unused data from one month over to the following month. While this will certainly help customers from going over their data, it might not be the only new feature that is said to be coming which is aimed at that particular purpose. Safety Mode, which enables data throttling so customers won't get overage fees after they have hit their monthly data limit could also be discussed.
In addition to the data increases, Safety Mode, and Carryover Data, Verizon is also said to be introducing the ability to pick up an extra 1GB of monthly data for just $15 a month on top of the existing package cost through a new feature called Data Boost, as well as Canada and Mexico roaming options included for both the XL and XXL plans. While there is still technically no confirmation from Verizon officially on these plan changes, Verizon states that the conference for tomorrow is going to show how they're "transforming the wireless experience," which may suggest that the changes and increases on the data packages are happening.
