Verizon prepares fees for mobile users who download too much information

• Stephen C. Webster via

Verizon Wireless on Tuesday became the latest U.S. mobile data carrier to announce that it would implement usage-based pricing for Internet access, claiming the new fees would mean light users no longer "subsidize" those who rely on the company's current unlimited data plans.

Though the company currently offers a $30-per-month "unlimited" data plan for smartphone owners, a spokesperson said that would not be available for new customers after July 7.

In its place, the company will offer data packages ranging from $10 for 75 megabytes, up to $80 for 10 gigabytes, with overage fees at $10 for every additional gigabyte downloaded.
