Carl Williams writes, "Verizon is known for being the more expensive option when it comes to prepaid plans. The cost of a monthly plan with one gig of data on Verizon is routinely the same price as competitor AT&T at two gigs per month. It is interesting to note though, at the top-tier of 5 gigs per month on prepaid plans, both services are similarly priced. This discrepancy is only really evident in the cheapest plans between Verizon and AT&T. Recently the big red mobile provider has moved to change that image for the better."
