Verizon and AT&T begin Call Plan Pricing War

When a couple of mobile carriers go at it on price, it is the customer who usually benefits, and currently it appears that customers with Verizon Wireless and AT&T will be benefiting for what an article over on katonda calls a price war.

The other day Verizon Wireless announced they were lowering their monthly calling plans from the previous $100 down to $69.99 and also announced a nationwide unlimited talk and text plan for $89.99.

So rival AT&T has announced they too are making changes which mean regular customers will now pay $69.00 for unlimited talk, family talk customers can opt for unlimited talk at $119.99, while text plans remain the same. AT&T smartphone and iPhone customers can get unlimited voice and data for $99.99, family talk plans with unlimited voice and data costs $179.99 while text plans go unchanged.

This means Verizon and AT&T customers gain reduced price plans which can only be better for the customer. One wonders if T-Mobile and the others will follow suit and lower calling plan charges, and will be interesting to see if anything else happens in the pricing war game.

    T-Mobile already lowered their pricing in October: $49.99 for unlimited calling on their EM+ plans.

    If anything, Verizon has responded to their pricing albeit 3 months late. At the time of T-Mobile’s new plans, Verizon CEO balked that he had no intentions on lowering their pricing when he spoke to investors.
