No one likes price increases, but they are basically unavoidable these days. They’re particularly annoying when the price of an essential service, like your cell phone line, increases. T-Mobile is one company that has sought to nickel and dime users recently, with changes such as worsening Price Lock or significantly nerfing its free Netflix perk. Now, Verizon is going to increase its prices on monthly plans for some legacy users once again.
Verizon is going to increase prices across some of its older postpaid plans beginning on March 1st. The price increases in question will affect select older Unlimited mobile plans, with these users set to see a $4 price increase on their next billing cycle after March 1st.
Customers will be notified of this change beginning on January 25th in order to allow them to sort things out if they’re not okay with these changes, so if you’re not sure whether you’re affected or not, you will likely be notified over the course of the next few weeks.
Pricing for plans on Verizon’s myPlan platform will remain the same for now, and it looks like Verizon wants people to use that.
Still, it’s notable because this would mark the second time Verizon increased prices on some of its users in 2024. The year 2024, mind you, only started 17 days ago as of the time of writing, and the first increase came 12 days ago (mostly to older business plans), so the fact that Verizon already increased its prices for a second time makes us a bit worried about how the rest of the year will pan out. Yikes.
To know if you’re affected by this change, make sure to keep an eye out for a notice from Verizon.
