Some Older Unlimited Wireless Plans Will Get a Price Hike Next Month

From CNET: Verizon customers with 5G Get More, 5G Play More, 5G Do More and 5G Start unlimited mobile plans will soon be seeing bigger bills. The mobile carrier has confirmed to CNET that it will be increasing the cost of those plans by $4, starting March 1.

"Starting March 1, Verizon customers on select older Unlimited mobile plans will see a monthly plan increase of $4 per line, effective their next billing cycle," a Verizon spokesperson told CNET in a statement.

The move is the latest Verizon price increase, with the carrier previously raising rates on some of its older unlimited plans last summer while also adding in new fees for other plans. In 2022, it raised the prices on its shared data plans. Plans that previously got a rate hike will not be seeing another increase with this move.

As with its other price increases, the move seems designed to push users to switch to some of its recent "myPlan" unlimited plans dubbed Unlimited Ultimate, Unlimited Plus and Unlimited Welcome. These new plans don't come with included streaming services like the Disney bundle or international data roaming days, but instead lets you add them as $10 per month "perks."
