It looks like America’s largest cellular carrier, Verizon Wireless, will be taking a page out of the playbook of the nation’s third largest provider, Sprint. We’ve received multiple tips indicating that customers in select markets are starting to receive an email offer from Big Red hawking a $69.99 monthly plan that closely resembles Sprint’s $69.99 Everything Data plan.
The aforementioned data plan will allot users 450 monthly minutes, unlimited messaging, unlimited data, and unlimited Verizon mobile-to-mobile minutes. A family share plan (for 2 lines) will retail for $139.99 and provide 1400 anytime minutes, unlimited messaging, unlimited data, and unlimited Verizon mobile-to-mobile minutes; additional lines can be added for $19.99. Both plans require a 1-year contract renewal and you can only take advantage of the promotion by calling the number listed in the email.
Sprint still has a proverbial leg-up on Verizon as their Everything Data plans all include unlimited, carrier agnostic, mobile-to-mobile calling minutes.
Still, if you’re a Big Red customer, and purchased all this new plan offers independently, it would retail for roughly $90 — $39.99 for 450 minutes, $19.99 for unlimited text messaging, and $29.99 for smartphone data. Hit the jump to see the full advert and let us know what you think
