Verizon’s chief operating officer confirmed that the carrier will offer a $30 unlimited data plan for iPhone users, according to the WSJ Digits blog. The move is an attempt to woo AT&T iPhone users who are grandfathered into unlimited plans, which AT&T stopped offering last year with the introduction of the iPhone 4. Of course a $30 unlimited data plan looks a lot more attractive than paying for an AT&T data plan with a GB cap and surcharges.
Verizon’s unlimited iPhone data plan will be a limited time offer, though Verizon reps haven’t announced how long the offer is good for. Our guess is the offer will expire whenever the next iPhone is introduced, presumably with LTE technology baked in.
