On the heels of today’s announcement that customers can use the HP Mini 1151 NR netbook to access the nation’s largest and most reliable 3G network, Verizon Wireless also announced beginning Sunday, it will automatically increase the data allowance fivefold for all Mobile Broadband customers on its lowest priced monthly plan. In addition, the company will also introduce new pricing for its Mobile Broadband Connect customers.

Verizon Wireless customers will be able to select from Mobile Broadband month-to-month, one- or two-year plans that include:

  • $39.99 monthly access for 250 MB monthly allowance and 10 cents per megabyte overage (currently, the plan offers 50 MB for $39.99 monthly access and 25 cents per megabyte overage)
  • $59.99 monthly access with a 5 GB monthly allowance and 5 cents per megabyte overage (currently, the plan offers 5 GB for $59.99 monthly access and 25 cents per megabyte overage)

Verizon Wireless’ Mobile Broadband DayPass is $15 for 24-hour access when any Mobile Broadband device is purchased at full retail price without a monthly service plan.

Mobile Broadband Connect lets customers use their handsets as modems. Beginning Sunday, Verizon Wireless customers can add Mobile Broadband Connect for $49.99 with any qualifying voice plan. Other Mobile Broadband options include:

  • $15 with a Nationwide Email Plan
  • $30 with a $29.99 or greater data plan or feature

Each option gives customers 5 GB of data usage, and the overage charge will change from 25 cents to 5 cents per MB over the allowance.

Although actual file sizes and customer experiences will vary, the following chart provides an example of different applications based on approximate size assumptions:

Application Type Approximate Size 250 MB Plan 5 GB Plan
E-mail (1 text page, no attachments) 3 KB 85,333 1,747,626
Word Document (5 text pages) 70 KB 3,657 74,898
Typical Web Page Lookup 300 KB 853 17,476
Low Resolution Digital Photo 500 KB 512 10,485
PowerPoint Presentation (20 pages text and light graphics) 3 MB 83 1,706
V CAST Music with Rhapsody PC Download (three-minute song) 4 MB 62 1,280

The VZAccess Manager solution from Verizon Wireless gives customers easy connection management and automatic installation on Windows and Mac systems. The software also allows customers to view Wi-Fi hotspots in their areas. Beginning this month, customers who reach specific usage allowance thresholds will be able to receive automatic alerts that pop up during their active sessions in VZAccess Manager.
