Older Verizon unlimited plans are getting a $4 per line, per month price hike2024-01-19 18:00 by Daniela
Verizon is raising prices on its 5G Get More, 5G Play More, 5G Do More and 5G Start unlimited plans. The carrier confirmed to CNET that it will be introducing a $4 per line, per month increase to users on those plans starting on March 1.
"Starting March 1, Verizon customers on select older Unlimited mobile plans will see a monthly plan increase of $4 per line, effective their next billing cycle," a Verizon spokesperson told CNET in a statement.
This is the second time Verizon has pulled this stunt in less than a year. Last August, the carrier upped the price of its Go Unlimited, Beyond Unlimited, Above Unlimited, and 5G Start unlimited plans by $3 a month per line.
It appears Verizon's intention with the price hike is to nudge its customers toward its Unlimited Ultimate, Unlimited Plus, and Unlimited Welcome plans. Verizon's spokesperson said that users on older plans "can easily move to myPlan and take advantage of the network option that works best for them, plus exclusive savings on the entertainment, shopping and experiences that matter to them, including Disney Plus, Apple One, Netflix, Max, Walmart and many others."
Verizon is the latest wireless provider to adjust its pricing. Last week AT&T upped the price of its unlimited plans by 99 cents per line, while T-Mobile this week confirmed it would be raising the prices for its Home Internet service.
