As expected, Verizon Wireless has unveiled the company’s new “More Everything” plans, which emphasize lower prices over early phone upgrades and other incentives. These will replace its current “Share Everything” offerings, and come just days after AT&T announced new family plans. Verizon customers will now pay $40 per month to share 1GB of data, twice the previous cap of 500MB. The price rises to $50 for 2GB, and $60 for 3GB. The new More Everything plans also add new low-cost plans for folks who don’t use much data. These run $15 a month for 250GB, and $30 for 500MB. Verizon’s plans that offer more than 3GB of data haven’t seen a price change. These start at $70 per month for 4GB of data. As Brent Dirks previously reported, customers who take advantage of the carrier’s Edge program will also be able to receive more discounts. Active Edge customers who have up to an 8GB data plan will receive $10 per month off the usual $40 smartphone access fee. If you have a 10GB or larger data plan, that fee will be cut in half to just $20 per month. Finally, the new More Everything plans include unlimited international messaging, and up to 25GB of cloud storage for users to upload photos, contacts, or anything else they wish to store remotely.
