    Folks,

    The news is almost a month old, but as I learned about it yesterday, I thought I'd share it

    Verizon has simplified international data plans for consumers. You now pay 25 dollars for 100 meg a month, if you use more, it's 25 bucks per 100 megs. So a pretty big improvement.

    Verizon is still a rip off!

    Improvement? Well, yes, if seen in isolation. But given that I get unlimited international data for less than the $25/month... I agree with poster #2.

    It is a huge improvement. When Verizon went from the unlimited international data where you could just pro-rate the days you needed to the more recent incarnations of their plans, some countries weren't even available and were "pay per use" at a high rate. Given that I don't use a tremendous amount of data while traveling, just knowing that the entire trip will cost an extra $25 is a good thing.
