A good news for the Verizon Prepaid users, on its Independence Day. Finally the Carrier provider Verizon brings LTE data plans for its prepaid customers. According to a source of Droid-Life, the Verizon is set to add LTE data access to its prepaid ALLSET plan on July 17th to better compete with the growing prepaid offering as compared to the other carriers providers.
We are assuming it will come with no price premium (it is still to announce), starting with this month we could be looking at a base Verizon ALLSET prepaid plan which offers unlimited talk and text with 500MB of LTE data at a price of $45. The Verizon also offered month-to-month data buckets at the price of 500MB for $5, 1GB for $10 and 3GB for $20.
While there is nothing for certain until Verizon is finally pulling the trigger on this thing. This time the Verizon has given the prepaid customers the flavor of its LTE network like the practically every other carrier does. The T-Mobile is also offering the same data access for its prepaid customers for years, and on the on the other side the AT&T has added LTE to its GoPhone and Cricket brands while also increasing data buckets, and even lower-end prepaid carriers like Straight Talk offer LTE.
Now even if in the case the carrier provider Verizon does not increase prices of its ALLSET plans it will still be priced at the higher end of competing prepaid carriers, but that is about par for the course for Big Red.
The main big thing that the Verizon ALLSET customers will be getting 2014-level data speeds — prices can adjust and come down over time after this.
