Verizon (VZ) May Soon Axe You From Service

If you’re one of the people who uses a lot of data, Verizon may end up getting rid of you.

According to Droid Life, beginning on August 31, Big Red will disconnect grandfathered unlimited subscribers who use an “extraordinary amount” of 4G LTE data each month.

Althogh Verizon won’t publicly put a number on this figure, if you use what they consider an “extraordinary amount,” you will be notified individually via a mailer and bill messages.

You’ll have two choices if this happens. 1. Switch to a more restrictive Verizon plan, or 2. Face disconnection. If you don’t swap plans by August 31, will have 50 days to re-activate your line on a Verizon Plan subscription, according to Droid Life.
Subscribers who use too much data will begin to receive warnings on Thursday, July 21.
