Verizon has had their Share Everything plans available for more than a year now, but there are still some that have been holding their now-grandfathered-in unlimited data plan. Big Red is also getting ready to have the Verizon Edge upgrade plan available. That will arrive on August 25th and as that comes available Verizon has what they are calling a special offer for those who are planning to use Edge and are “concerned about losing their unlimited plan.”
This offer is called Verizon Max and the specifics are coming by way of a leak at the moment. While we would normally consider this to be firmly in the rumor category, we have seen a little bit direct from Verizon. Or more specifically, the @VZWSupport had tweeted (then deleted) a message about how they have a 6GB/$30 promotion for customers with unlimited data.
Anyway, aside from waiting for an official announcement from Verizon — it looks like the specifics have been revealed. Whether this proves to be a good option for anyone will come down to a personal decision, but with that in mind here is what Verizon Max will bring; 6GB of data for $30 per month or 8GB of data with mobile hotspot for $50 per month. Both of these options have overages being billed at $10 per GB.
These are non-shared data plans and it looks like they will only be available for a limited time. Verizon will be pushing these as a “data feature that offers large amounts of data at affordable prices.” The leaked document also goes on to mention how these are “some of the best data offers to date.”
It looks like the Verizon Max plan offers will be available on Sunday August 25th — the same day as the Verizon Edge upgrade offer becomes available.
