Wherever you turn you see a special offer aimed at users who are interested in multi-line plans and usually carriers make a big deal about introducing such a plan. But what about those who don’t have a big family, dozens of close friends or simply don’t want to share their plan with anyone else? With such users in mind Verizon quietly introduced a new Single Line plan for $60 that could find favor with a number of lone wolves.
Verizon’s New Single Line Plan for $60
The plan costs $60 per month and includes unlimited talk and text as well as 2GB of high-speed data. If you opt for monthly payments with Verizon Edge, the carrier will take away $10 from your bill, so the price will drop to $50 per month. However, if you are a heavy data user, you might want to think twice before choosing the new Single Line plan because Verizon will charge you an overage fee of $15 for each GB over the 2GB data limit.
On the other hand, even including the overage fee, the Single Line plan appears to be a better choice than More Everything plan if you don’t need more than one smartphone per account. In addition to unlimited talk and text, More Everything subscribers can buy a 2GB data package for $50, but is you add this to the $40 that users have to pay for a smartphone, total costs works out to $90 per month. The Single Line plan costs $60 per month which leaves you with $30 in savings per month or $360 after one year.
If for some reason you don’t want to stick with Verizon, other carriers offer quite similar plans. AT&T plan includes identical benefits but costs $65 per month. Sprint’s plan is priced at $55 per month, but come with only 1GB of data. Last but not least, T-Mobile has a plan that offers 1GB of data for $50 per month or 3GB of data for $60.
The new Verizon’s Single Line plan is clearly aimed at a specific group of potential customers who don’t want to share their plan with other members of the family. It seems like an interesting, and more importantly more affordable, alternative to More Everything Plan. Anyone interested?
