Verizon wireless customers on the carrier's $30 per month unlimited data plan will eventually have to leave the grandfathered plan behind.
Fierce Wireless reports Verizon CFO Fran Shammo said users on the 3G unlimited data plan will have to purchase the company's data-share plan as they migrate to 4G LTE devices. "Everyone will be on data-share," Shammo said.
No pricing details for the data sharing plan have been released, but it is expected to launch this summer.
Most carriers have had to backpedal on unlimited data plans amid the mobile device boom that brought a surge of wireless data subscribers, and fast-paced mobile technology with an increasing appetite for bandwidth.
