Verizon aiming to kill old unlimited-data plan

BLADE STAFF AND NEWS SERVICES

LOS ANGELES -- Verizon Communications Inc. announced Wednesday the company will begin forcing users with grandfathered-in unlimited data plans to choose data-share plans when they migrate to the company's 4G network.

With 3G no longer the fastest option, users are expected to migrate to Verizon's 4G LTE network, and as they do, they will be forced to give up their unlimited plans for Verizon's tiered data plans, company officials said.

The announcement is the latest move by the communications industry away from unlimited data plans and a shift to tiered plans.
