This morning Verizon Wireless announced that new and current subscribers can switch to a month-to-month payment plan instead of continuing on, or starting a new, one or two-year contract. The switch means customers can pay a full non-subsidized price for their handsets, and leave Verizon Wireless whenever they choose to, without paying an early-termination fee. This is good news for people that aren’t sure how long they’ll remain in a Verizon Wireless coverage area. Say, for example, you’re on assignment in New York City for 6 months, but are travelling back to Kansas City and the end of that period. You may want to pay month by month in New York City to take advantage of Verizon Wireless’ good coverage, but also might want to switch back to another carrier in the mid-west after your assignment is over. It’s also good for people who travel a lot and may not be in the country at all times and don’t want to pay for months when they aren’t in Verizon Wireless’ coverage area at all. New customers can sign up for month-to-month nationwide voice and data plans now, but current subscribers will have to finish out their contracts or pay an early-termination fee to begin using this new plan.
