Verizon will Force Unlimited Data Users That Use More Than 100GB Per Month to Switch Plans

Verizon still has customers on its network that have hung onto their unlimited data plans, but the Big Red carrier wants them to transition.

To get a few more over onto the company’s tiered data plans, or to just get them off the unlimited plans altogether, Verizon has confirmed to Ars Technica that it will be focusing on customers that are using an excessive amount of data per month on their line — not an entire account. Specifically, Verizon will be notifying customers that use 100GB or more on their line that they need to switch to a new Verizon Plan by August 31.

“While the Verizon Plan at 100GB is designed to be shared across multiple users. Each line receiving notification to move to the new Verizon Plan is using well in excess of that on a single device.”

Verizon does note that this is just a “small group” of users. It’s also worth noting that, while previous reports had suggested Verizon would cut these customers off completely if they didn’t witch to a Verizon Plan, with the option to reactivate within 50 days on a new, not unlimited plan, that isn’t official just yet. Verizon Wireless hasn’t said what will happen to the customers that don’t switch.

How much data do you use every month?
