The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Verizon Wireless plans to introduce tiered data pricing in the coming months. “Verizon Communications Inc. Chief Executive Ivan Seidenberg said the company’s wireless arm expects to introduce its own form of tiered pricing, possibly over the next four to six months,” writes the WSJ. The report doesn’t specify whether Mr. Seidenberg was speaking solely about the company’s new, 4G, LTE network that is due to launch before the end of this year. The CEO went on to say — thankfully — that his company does not agree with how rival AT&T is valuing their data; referring to the tiered data plans instituted by Ma’ Bell several months ago. More on this story as it develops.
