PSA: Verizon to Disconnect Unlimited Data Users Who Use “Extraordinary” Amounts of Data - Unlimited Data Switching Options
Thread DetailsLast Edited by DrRad July 21, 2016 at 02:56 PM
Verizon will begin notifying users who have been flagged as using that "extraordinary" amount via mailer and through bill messages and explain to them their options to stay with Big Red. Verizon is forcing these out of contract "extraordinary" data users to move to The Verizon Plan (a tiered plan) by August 31 or they will shut down the line. If they don't take that option by August 31 and their line is disconnected, they will have up to 50 days to re-activate, but of course, they can only do so by switching over to The Verizon Plan.
No word on what that specific amount might be, but now might be a good time to make arrangements.
According to Ars, the limit may be users above 100GB
