Verizon is adding a new $2 fee to some of its older unlimited plans, CNET has confirmed. The new charges, which the carrier describes as a “rate plan adjustment,” will affect those on various unlimited plans, including Beyond Unlimited (and its 55+ variant), Go Unlimited, and the older Verizon Unlimited plan. .
Customers will begin to be notified of the new charges via email, physical mail, and notices on their upcoming March bills. The new fees – which will be $2 per line, per month – will start with April bills.
A Verizon spokesperson said the fee is “to account for the additional cost of maintaining these legacy plans.”
Go and Beyond packages were introduced in 2018 while Verizon Unlimited was announced in 2017. The carrier is not adding any new charges to its most recent unlimited plans.
The new fees were first reported by YouTuber Technological life chain.
New fees or rate hikes on older plans aren’t new to Verizon, as it seeks to push its users to its newer plans. Last year, the carrier added new “economic adjustment fee” to its customers’ invoices while being separately increase the rates of its old shared data plans.
