Verizon MiFi may affect EVDO data plans

UPDATE: 05/15/09: Check out our online Verizon MiFi 2200 review
UPDATE: 05/14/09
-- as suspected, Verizon has updated their mobile broadband plans.
Included in a recent Verizon MiFi 2200 press release was this information about data plan options:
  • $39.99 monthly access for 250 MB monthly allowance and 10 cents per megabyte overage
  • $59.99 monthly access for 5 GB monthly allowance and 5 cents per megabyte overage

Those two plans are different than current verizon mobile broadband plans, seen in this screengrab taken minutes ago:

In case you aren't seeing the difference, the $39.99/mo plan increases the allowed monthly usage from a ridiculous 50MB to a larger (but still paltry) 250MB, and reduced the overage charge from 25cents/MB to 10cents/MB.

In addition to the changes on the lower cost plan, the overage charge for the $59.99/mo plan that allows for 5GB of data per month has dropped from 25cents/MB all the way down to 5cents/MB -- same as rival Sprint has been charging for overage charges since November, 2008

Its not known at this time if Verizon will make the plans in the press release available only for the MiFi 2200, or if they replace what is currently available as mobile broadband data plans for devices like the Verizon USB760
