Verizon announced that they are going to offer unlimited plans to their users starting February 19th (tomorrow).

I always wondered why this wasn’t done years ago. This could be a major influence in areas like ours with only 2 real cel phone competitors. If one offers unlimited minutes and the other does not and you are a heavy cell phone user, the choice is pretty clear on which vendor to use.

I see all major networks offering unlimited plans by year end. My guess is within 2 years there will no longer be restrictions on minutes, but rather a per month charge similar to internet or landline service.
