Verizon Wireless, the nation’s largest cell phone company, is dropping nearly all of its phone plans in favor of pricing schemes that encourage consumers to connect their non-phone devices, like tablets and PCs, to Verizon’s network.
From the carrier’s perspective, providing unlimited access is an efficient use of its network, because calling and texting take up very little capacity. Data usage, on the other hand, consumes a lot of network resources.
The savings will come to subscribers who add more devices like tablets to their plans. In such cases, the new pricing system will be cheaper compared with separate data plans for each device. Today, few consumers put tablets on data plans, probably because they dread paying an extra $30 or so per month, on top of their phone bills.
Will consumers continue to gobble up smart phones, even as they become increasingly expensive?
The simple answer: probably. Data on mobile technology collected by the Pew Research Center suggests that Americans are growing more dependent on their “smart” devices. As of October 2014, 64% of American adults owned a smartphone and as of January 2014 90% owned a cell phone.
