I’ve heard this from a number of folks, but Engadet Mobile is where I read it first. It seems like Verizon will be offering unlimited voice and data plans as soon as tomorrow. This is a good deal, but at the top end of the plans, the price seems a little steep. No mention of if this includes tethering or BB data. Stay tuned.

  • $100 – Nationwide Unlimited (voice)
  • $120 – Nationwide Select Unlimited (voice, SMS, MMS)
  • $140 – Nationwide Premium (voice, SMS, MMS, VZNav, VCAST, email)
  • $150 – Nationwide Email and Messaging (voice, SMS, MMS, and data)
  • $170 – Nationwide Global Email and Messaging (voice, SMS, MMS, and international data)
  • $200 – Family plan with two lines, $100 per additional line.

You are an oracle; you called it. AT&T offered an unlimited plan years ago, but only as they were getting out of the mobile business. Given the way consumer adoption has shown that, when given a choice of unlimited vs. metered, the consumer chooses unlimited every time, plus the downturn of the economy, it’s a ripe area. Consumers will win in this fight.

Well, hardly an oracle *blush*. I agree that consumers will eventually win in this fight. I can see this starting to resemble cable, where the basic tier gets more and more packed with value. So, unlimited voice is a start (and I remember that great $99 ATT plan from years back) and unlimited data plans will start to become the norm. At that point, when the average consumer gets unlimited voice and data, the number of applications and content outlets will begin to explode. And then the mobile web will begin to resemble the opportunity of the traditional web.This is all good stuff.I think Geoffery Moore would call this week an inflection point for the mobile industry.
