WASHINGTON, September 23, 2010 – After months of hinting and speculation, Verizon Wireless CEO Ivan Seidenberg has told the Wall Street Journal that the firm would introduce tiered data pricing. Currently AT&T is the only firm to tier mobile data on handsets.
Seidenberg said the new tiers would be for its LTE service, not current 3G offerings. No details about the tiers or their potential pricing was released, but he did state that the details would be public within six months. Earlier this month, the firm announced that it would launch its LTE service by the end of the year.
