Verizon Wireless, the biggest U.S. mobile operator, has confirmed plans to move away from its unlimited data plan.
The wireless giant is ending the plan for new smartphone customers, effective Thursday.
Verizon Wireless spokeswoman Debra Lewis told Apple Insider that the company will begin offering its usage-based” billing for mobile customers.
The change will not affect current smartphone customers, such as subscribers who own an iPhone.
New smartphone users reportedly can choose four different monthly data plans: $10 for 75 megabytes; $30 for 2 gigabytes; $50 for 5 GB; and $80 for 10 GB.
Users who exceed their monthly allotment will be charged $10 per GB or $10 per 75 MB on the entry-level plan, according to the report.
