    Would Verizon follow at&t?

    at&t just dropped price for the their "ELITE" plan. If you have it, they charge you as "EXTRA". Now you pay $40 per line instead of $50 (4 lines). Would Verizon do anything similar?

    What does this “elite” plan offer that’s comparable to what Verizon offers? I’ve never heard of it.

    Yeah except after the 30 GB hotspot you only get 128 kbps which is useless. Compared to 600 kbps on Verizon which is sightly less useless

    Well, you can in fact get by on the 600kbps, it's much better than 128kbps throttle.

    at&t just dropped price for the their "ELITE" plan. If you have it, they charge you as "EXTRA". Now you pay $40 per line instead of $50 (4 lines). Would Verizon do anything similar?
    Would not be surprised; VZW and AT&T have generally competed more with each other than with T-Mo and Sprint; one of VZW and AT&T raises price, the other feels less pressure and raises their price similarly. One of them starts lowering prices and the other generally follows. With T-Mo in the last year or two using their 600 and 700mhz spectrum to fill out and expand coverage, I could see them putting more competitive pressure on AT&T and VZW.

    What I'd like, is if for marketing reasons they end up applying some of the (currently mmwave only for Verizon) 5G limits to DSS 5G. I doubt they could keep the "no deprio" outside mmwave areas, but having 50GB of hotspot and 3mbps throttle (even if it was still deprio'ed at 22GB...) would be enough to get me to consider 5G even without mmwave coverage.
