Verizon stops subsidizing prices of 4G LTE tablets

updated 03:41 pm EDT, Tue July 3, 2012

Verizon prices of 4G LTE tablets now the same as in retail stores

Verizon has now stopped subsidizing the mobile broadband radio-equipped tablets it sells, which has resulted in a significant increase in their purchase prices. While there are no contracts buyers will need to sign, the prices reflect those in other stores, so the least expensive 16GB 3G New iPad costs $630. The move was prompted after Verizon introduced Share Everything plans last month.

Adding data to the tablets requires a $10 buy-in per month to access the Share Everything plan. Data costs $60 for 2GB, $70 for 4GB, $80 for 6GB, $90 for 8GB, and $100 for 10GB. Overages are priced at $15 per each extra gigabyte over those allotments, though they can be lowered to $10 per gigabyte if Verizon is informed of it before it happens. These can be shared with up to 10 other Verizon devices, however.



Pre-paid plans cost $20 for 1GB, $30 for 2GB, $50 for 3GB, or $80 for 8GB.

    Confused

    The prices do not look any different than they did before. What am I missing?
