By now, it is getting very clear that Verizon Wireless shall be making the official announcement about its iPhone plans this week – on Tuesday to be precise. The device is expected to launch by February 3rd according to several sources. Now, the Wall Street Journal offers some more interesting tidbits about this new release. In a recently published report, the newspaper has claimed that Verizon Wireless could be mulling over an unlimited data plan option – similar to the one offered by AT&T initially and that was retracted last year – to its iPhone users.
This could be a double-edged sword for Verizon since such an offering could attract a lot of users to sign up for their unlimited offering which is an attractive alternative to AT&T’s capped pricing structure. However, it is also worth noting that such an offering was primarily responsible for clogging the AT&T infrastructure – a problem that has afflicted Ma Bell’s network to this day.
It will be interesting to see how Verizon can cope up in a similar scenario.
