Verizon customers on some older Unlimited plans will soon see a price hike on their bill.
The mobile carrier is raising the prices on its 5G Get More, 5G Play More, 5G Do More, and 5G Start unlimited plans by $4 per line, per month starting March 1, according to CNET. The price changes are meant to migrate customers to newer plans.
“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 confirmed to Cord Cutters News in a statement via email.
This comes after the mobile carrier has raised its services prices a number of times over the last year.
In August, Verizon tacked on an extra $10 for its 5G home internet service, bringing the total to $35 a month with restrictions.
This comes after the mobile carrier raised prices in July for customer with Mix & Match 1.0 plans. Users were charged $3 extra for Go 2.0, Beyond 2.0, Above, Start 1.0 plans, and $5 more for Single Basic Phone plans. Before that, the older plans saw a $2 price hike in spring of 2022.
“Customers on older plans can easily move to myPlan and take advantage of the network option that works best for them, plus exclusive savings on the entertainment, shopping and experiences that matter to them, including Disney Plus, Apple One, Netflix, Max, Walmart and many others,” the spokesperson said.
Verizon isn’t alone its efforts to drive customers to its newer offerings. In addition to price adjustments, multiple carriers have shut down their 2G and 3G networks to encourage customers to upgrade to 4G and 5G networks.
