Free LTE was only temporary offer. I believe Vz had made it clear that the free hot spot on these LTE phones was only temporary.
Again, this is functionality embedded in the device and Android already. Verizon claiming this is a "service" they can give and take away is an illusion. It's an entirely unnecessary fee layer being cooked up here that again -- makes no sense when you've already got your users on metered pricing.

Of course it makes sense. Users who want to use it will pay for it. Those who don't want to pay for it don't get to use it. It's business.

That may be true, but the same could be said for text messaging, which basically costs the companies nothing to send and receive but they charge a nice sum for it, even with unlimited.
