Verizon Launches New 'More Everything' Plans with Doubled Monthly Data, 25GB of Cloud Storage

verizon_logo_500 Verizon today introduced its new "MORE Everything" plans, which offers up to double the monthly data for customers while also implementing doubled bandwidth, a complimentary 25GB of cloud storage, and unlimited international messaging.

The carrier is also offering discounts for customers enrolled in its Verizon Edge early upgrade program, as those with monthly data plans of 8GB of data or less receiving a line discount of $10, while others will receive a $20 line discount if their plans include 10GB of data or more.

The move comes in the midst of a marketing war between U.S. cellular carriers. Recently, AT&T launched lower-cost Mobile Share Value Plans for families and announced a new promotion to offer up to $450 in credits to customers that switch to it from T-Mobile. Meanwhile, T-Mobile launched its own program offering up to $350 in credits to customers that switch to its network.

Verizon also posted its results for Q4 2013 last month, stating that it had activated 8.8 million smartphones, down from 9.8 million smartphones in the year ago quarter. Notably, Verizon failed to announce sales numbers for the iPhone on its network, marking the first time that the carrier has done so since it began selling Apple's device in February 2011.

How about the big carriers try this: instead of repackaging the same old nonsense and charging us more for it, try giving us what we actually want and charging less?

It's a pipe dream, I know.

Is there anyone that still believes AT&T and Verizon would be making these moves without an independent T-Mobile?

Anyone?

I think the new plans are garbage! Mostly because they don't benefit me.

I prefer the cheaper, WAY faster network of AT&T. Keep your cloud storage. I would rather have the quality and provide the carrier less of my money.

I must be missing something, as this prices out exactly the same as the current plan I have now. Color me confused!

The only benefit of Verizon is the hotspot functionality that they are required to have due to the national spectrum block that they purchased. I haven't even used that in a long while.


Just FYI, the AT&T mobile share plans all include hotspot functionality.

Plans that include 2GB or less data are priced lower. Everything higher than 2GB is priced the same.

AT&T and Verzion have a significant data collection/data storage infrastructure, I have personally works on some projects. Far from dumb pipes


The point you're missing is that people only care about the dumb pipes from their wireless carriers.

Most people aren't interested in these "value add" propositions, usually because they get those features elsewhere, with some combination of lower cost/better features/no carrier lock-in.

Like the free email accounts supplied by your ISP, these are just tools Verizon uses to lock customers in to their service, to make it hard to jump ship if/when a better opportunity presents itself.

That, and it gives the marketing types a way to justify their existence. ;)
