The End of Unlimited Wireless Data?

Monday, March 15th, 2010

Well, maybe not – but it’s a reasonable question.

Despite increasingly crowded wireless networks, unlimited voice and data plan pricing has been trending downward.  At present, every national carrier in the US offers its own flavor of “all you can eat” service, with Sprint touting the cheapest offering ($69.99/mo).

Recent comments from the top brass at Verizon and AT&T may indicate a predictable departure from this trend.  While per MB pricing has been a persistent reality for users that occasionally roam internationally, tiered data packages are likely to replace the one size fits all paradigm that’s emerged in the US market.
