Just hours after rival AT&T promised to give Mobile Share Value subscribers more data for their money, Verizon Wireless, the nation’s leading mobile operator, replicated AT&T’s move Friday by increasing monthly data allotments on its $80 and $100 More Everything service plans.
Beginning Saturday, November 1, and running for a limited time, the promotion gives both existing and new More Everything subscribers ten and fifteen gigabytes of high-speed 4G LTE data for $80 and $100 per month, respectively.
By comparison, AT&T said Mobile Share Value customers will get three gigabytes of high-speed 4G LTE data for $40 a month instead of two gigabytes, and six gigabytes for $70 a month instead of four gigabytes like before.
“This isn’t for just new customers either,” said the Big Red carrier. “Existing customers can take advantage of this promotional pricing by visiting My Verizon.”
Not to be outdone by AT&T, Verizon threw in a nice little bonus in the form of a $150 port-in credit which will land in your account if you switch to Verizon and buy a new 4G LTE smartphone with either a two-year contract or under Verizon’s Edge program.
Both offers are available beginning November 1, conveniently timed just 24 hours ahead of AT&T’s double data deal, and are available for a limited time.
I don’t need to dress up for #halloween. Being John Legere is scary enough for the competition!

Neither Sprint nor T-Mobile would respond at post time to AT&T’s and Verizon’s limited-time deals.
