Verizon spokeswoman Brenda Raney told FierceWireless that new smartphone customers will choose from one of three options: $30 for 2 GB, $50 for 5 GB or $80 for 10 GB. There will be an overage charge of $10 per GB of data. Verizon will also charge $10 for 75 MB per month for feature phone users.

The report goes on to say that Verizon will begin charging for use of the LTE mobile hotspot service. Existing users can pay $30 per month for unlimited use, new users can pay $20 per month for an additional 2GB for hotspot or other data usage. Existing Verizon customers will have their unlimited plans grandfathered for at least one smartphone upgrade after the changes are made.
