Talk about déjà vu. Just under two years after Verizon Wireless went ahead and slashed EV-DO prices
by twenty bucks, it looks like history
has indeed repeated itself. Rather than being forced have a voice plan with the company in order to qualify for the "unlimited" $59.99 BroadBandAccess plan, newcomers can now ink their name to a data-only agreement and receive access for that same price. Notably, those only willing to sign for one year can get in for $79.99 per month without any sort of voice plan, and while we're inclined to believe this this price drop is more or less permanent, it should be mentioned that a "limited time only" blurb does precede the offer.
