    $80 for one line on the best network in the country... seems like a fantastic deal

    So is it $80 for the plan plus $45 per line or just $45 per line?

    If it's 80 even I may consider dumping att udp

    Seems too good to be true. If it were just $80/mo for everything I'd drop AT&T in a heartbeat but I'm sure the $80 is just data and you'll pay for network access and a smartphone usage fee and a bunch of other nonsense to get it well into the $140+ range.

    This IS Verizon after all.

    I am already on the 12GB plan which happens to be $80.00. Will I automatically get the unlimited plan or will I need to call and switch plans?

    Interesting for sure. I wonder how many on the grandfathered UDP will jump ship?

    I also thought about it....from the other thread. (I'm sure mods will close one of them)

    Starting tomorrow Verizon to feature unlimited data

    They say they will deprioritize after 22 gb. That seems fair and better than permanent throttle and when congestion is minimal back to normal. (I wonder when deprioritization became fair in our minds?)

    Nope, it's $80 + tax for a single line plan (plus whatever device payments you have)

    Your right but it's also not just a copy and paste from no telling where--it's from an obvious legitimate source

    Sounds like their "de-prioritizing" may be better than being "throttled" on other carriers?

    Says they "de-prioritize" which sounds better than "throttling". Sounds like it means you'll just get put at "the back of the line" on the specific network resources your locally sharing and not throttled until end of billing cycle. Sounds like de-prioritized means a short rather than long(er) hindrance as we know throttling to be.

    If I'm wrong and "de-prioritization" means same as "throttling" then I guess we can than thank them for trying to make it sound like it's better to be de-prioritized than throttled.

    Just for reference my original unlimited data, without 22gb cap, cost over $200 a month compared to the $80 here so... let that sink it

    With this new plan, is the line access fee going from $20.00 to $45.00 per phone, whether it be single line or multiple? The article on the Verizon site is not crystal clear (at least to me).

    so what's the breakdown of this new plan anybody have an idea?because usually employee discount applies only with the data price so I want to know how much is it..also the price doesn't include smart access fee right? that's extra $20 on top of everything + dpp if you have it of course..
