Verizon Wireless is toying with the idea of eliminating its unlimited data plans and switching to tiered pricing, according to its parent companys chief financial officer, John Killian.In an interview with Bloombergs BusinessWeek, Killian said, “We will probably need to change the design of our pricing where it will not be totally unlimited, flat rate.”A jump to tiered pricing would mimic a similar move by AT&T, which put the brakes on its unlimited data plan earlier this month.Under AT&Ts DataPlus plan, customers will now pay $15 a month for 200 megabytes of data and $15 for each additional 200MB over their quota. Under the DataPro plan, customers pay $25 for 2 gigabytes of data and an additional $10 for each extra 1GB.

Greedy telcos. Here is an idea, how about creating a network that works and ditch the contracts and let the consumers decide who to do business with.
