Cellphone plan war: AT&T vs. Verizon
As you know Verizon made a decent price cut on some of their plans this week, and in response to that, AT&T said bring it on.
The two have always been at battle, but with AT&T’s response so closely timed with Verizon’s, its a complete price war and we don’t know when it will stop, or what other carriers plan to join in. Undercutting each other to maintain a larger market share, both companies unlimited voice plan package prices were cut, that goes for the iPhone too.
Verizon dropped their nationwide unlimited talk and text plan to $89.99, with Unlimited Talk at $69.99, that’s a full $29 a month less than what you would have paid back in ’09 (if you call them to change your plan). More on Verizon’s rate cuts in our previous article.
AT&T didn’t want to sit on the sidelines so they matched Verizon’s unlimited voice plan at $69.99, unlimited talk and text at $89.99 and the iPhone “smartphone” plan with unlimited voice and data is stuck at $99.99. New plans start Monday, you can call to switch without a pentalty or contract extension.
