Verizon to offer LTE data plans contract-free for same monthly rate

Here’s a bit of good news for those folks who want to take advantage of Verizon’s new LTE data service but are a little leery of two-year contracts. Verizon has confirmed to BGR that the 5GB and 10GB LTE plans announced yesterday, which retail for $50 and $80 respectively, will be available on a month-to-month basis for the same price. Users interested in the contract-free option will be required to purchase their LTE equipment at its full-retail price  — currently, Verizon’s two data sticks cost $249 unsubsidized — and, like the on-contract plans, overages will be billed at $10 per gigabyte. Sounds like a pretty good deal to us. What do you think?
