Verizon Chief Operating Officer Lowell McAdam had recently confirmed speculations about the unlimited data plan on the upcoming CDMA iPhone. Now, the carrier has further confirmed another important detail with respect to the pricing plan – the cost of the mobile hotspot feature that will be available on Verizon iPhone. According to a recent statement from the company, wireless hotspot – that will let users set up their Verizon iPhone 4 as a router for accessing internet from up to five internet capable devices will be available at a price of $20 a month.
The announcement will draw inevitable comparisons with similar offering from AT&T. It is worth noting that while AT&T’s tethering feature too is available at $20 a month ( the mobile hotspot functionality too should be coming soon), the carrier allows connectivity with only one device at any given time. This makes the Verizon offering a much better alternative to AT&T’s. What do you think?
