Extra pressure from competing carriers compels Verizon to offer more
Verizon has launched its More Everything plans today, providing customers with more data on a number of plans. Just as leaked yesterday, the data allowances for the 500MB and 1Gb Share Everything plans will be doubled at no extra cost, the 2GB plan will offer 3GB of data, as well as some pricing changes to plans that take advantage of the Verizon Edge upgrade offers.
While the new pricing and allowances will apply to new customers signing up for a two-year commitment, existing customers will also receive the allowance increases at no charge. Customers using Verizon Edge will receive a $10 discount off their monthly bill if their More Everything plan offers up to 8GB of data allowance, with those opting for a 10GB or greater plan receiving a discount of $20.

Customers will also receive up to 25GB of cloud storage as a freebie, something that was previously priced at $3, as well as unlimited international messaging from the US. One item not listed in the leak is a free three-month subscription of the Family Base add-on, which provides parental controls to the account, though after the three months are up, this will be available to use at $5 per month. The company's International Long Distance Plan, usually $5 per month, will also be free for three months.
