Verizon announced it's new Tiered Data Plans. Basically, 250MB for $15. They dropped the $10 for 25MB. Now while that looks like a good deal, lets look more closely: The unlimited data plan has a 5B cap on it (allegedly). There are approximately 1024MB in 1GB. 5x1024=5120MB. Divide 5120MB by $30/mo=.0058 or about 1/2 cent per MB. 250MB at that same cost is $1.45. Why are they charging $15/mo for something that if you buy the unlimited data plan only costs $1.45? 100% mark up = Highway robbery. If you divide 250/MB by $15 for the new tiered data plan, you are paying $.06/MB instead of $.006/MB. Did someone misplace a decimal point when they were figuring the math on these things? Here is the true price it SHOULD be (I'm rounding .0058 to .006 based off of the 5GB cap on Unlimited Data): 1GB= $6.14 2GB= $12.28 3GB= $18.43 4GB= $24.58 5GB= $$30.72 (Which shows you that the .006 is a high estimate b/c it's only $30/5GB) If it the data plan was based on the current price of $15/250MB the cost WOULD BE: 1GB= $61.44 2GB= $122.88 3GB= $184.32 4GB= $245.46 5GB= $307.20 Not that I want to give Big Red any ideas or anything. Bottom line? Unlimited is a GREAT deal at around 1/2 cent per MB. If you pay $15 for 250MB you are not wise.
