Bad news, guys.

Don't expect to see unlimited data plans for Verizon's LTE network. A few minutes ago, during their LTE keynote Q&A, a spokesperson for Big Red stated that the company has yet to formalize their tiered data pricing for the new service. He did say that he felt there was "a place" for unlimited plans, but he added that "over time, our customers will need to shift their consumption to pay-as-you-use".

He "expects" Verizon's pricing plans to evolve in that direction. It looks like the "bucket of megabytes and gigabytes" approach has another adherent. At this point, Sprint/Clear seems to be the only carrier with a stated focus to continue providing unlimited data access.

Verizon's LTE network will be up by the end of the year, with a specific launch date due in the coming weeks/months.
