Verizon put out a press release today lowering their overage charge for mobile broadband service from $0.25/MB to just $0.05/MB -- which ties them with Sprint for lowest overage charge.

They also increased the allowance for their lowest priced monthly plan from 50MB to a (still measley) 250MB.

(I still don't think many RVers can get away with that lower allowance)

Lastly, verizon lowered the "data feature" that allows tethering cell phones and PDAs. The new rate is $49.99/mo (and should still be pro-rated)

Awesome.. thanks for the heads up!

We still don't think 5GB is a reasonable limit for something that was more recently marketed as 'unlimited'. But at least the overage charges aren't as painful!
