As we suspected they might, Verizon has lowered their overage charges for their EVDO Mobile Broadband service.
The Verizon 5GB/mo data plan used to have a $250/GB overage charge, and should now only be $50/GB -- which matches that of EVDO competitor Sprint.
Additionally, Verizon changed their lower priced $39.99/mo data plan, increasing the allowance to 250MB (from 50MB) and dropping the overage charge from $250/GB to just $100/GB
FYI, we still don't think anyone will be able to stay under a 250MB/mo allowance.
Lastly, verizon's "Data feature" for tethering cell phones used to cost $59.99/mo, but should now just be $49.99/mo and will also have a lowered overage charge of $50/GB after the 5GB/mo allowance.
