"When it comes to data, Verizon is switching to a "Pay to Play" method of data plans. The more you use, the more you pay. Just like electricity, gasoline, and the food you eat."
Verizon's tiered plans have nothing in common with any of those things. The gas station doesn't charge you for 20 gallons of gas if you only used 10 gallons, and they don't stick you with an overage fee if you you happen to use 20.01 gallons.
That's why these new plans are such a scam. They force you to pay for data you didn't use, and then overcharge you if you happen to need a little extra.
