Verizon does have more then 10gb plan, when you goto select a plan, you get more choices, also up to 20gb. Verizon plans are

10gb - $100
12gb - $110
14gb - $120
16gb - $130
18gb - $140
20gb - $150

Also, the ATT share plan is for 15gb, not 16gb, for $160

Re: Typos

Thanks, didn't realize that. Verizon's original announcement only went up to 10 GB.

you've got another mistake

Both companies' plans are designed to prevent users from choosing less expensive voice and text options as voice and text become more popular -- jacking up the price of data and introducing new attachment fees to compensate for that lost revenue.

I presume you meant to say "less popular"?

Interesting...didn't notice that VZW had the ability to add data above 10GB. But there it is on their website.

Granted, paying $10 per GB for your first $100 worth of data isn't a good deal. However $5 per GB beyond 10GB (okay, technically it's $5 per GB beyond 2GB, but the cost of a single gigabyte is ridiculous) isn't the worst thing that's come down the pike.

That is very interesting about the Verizon data plans going up to 20GB.

I currently pay $90 for an individual unlimited talk and text plan with a $100 data plan that includes mobile hot spot at a special that was offered for double the data at the time. So I get 20GB plus an additional 2 GB for the hot spot feature.

With my employer discount on the data services of 20% ($100 for 22GB is reduced to $80), my bill before taxes comes to around $170.

$90 for unlimited talk and text
$80 for 22GB data (after 20% discount)
_____
$170

Now it seems that I could sign up for a shared plan with Verizon and pay $40 for the smart phone and $150 for the 20GB of data. If I can apply the same 20% discount to the shared data feature, that would bring the data price down to $120.

$40 for unlimited talk and text
$120 for 20GB data (after 20% discount)
____
$160

When my current 2-year contract expires, I will look into the option of getting the 20GB shared plan for a single phone and perhaps save $240 over the length of the next 2-year contract.

20GB is my safe cap level to avoid overages, so at least I'll most likely have that option going forward with Verizon, AT&T, and possibly Sprint over LTE in my region.

Actually you can get a 30 GB plan for $200.

Re: cant go over 20/30 GB

Im sure you ( or anyone for that matter) can call in and have a plan custom made for them for 50-100GB if your really inclined to use that much data over cellular.. All you have to do in the words of Jerry Maguire is.... "SHOW ME THE MONEY!"
