Why no deals for unlimited data like AT&T/Direct TV???

Verizon is making this big advertising push that they are once again offering Unlimited Data!!!

But why is there no deal for Verizon Wireless/Verizon Fios customers like the Unlimited deal with AT&T Wireless and Direct TV?

I don't want my wireless data bill to go from $70 per month (two people sharing 8GB of data) to $110.

If the plan doesn't work for you, don't switch.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

A bundle deal MAY happen at some point.  Or it may not.  Watch for deals and jump on them if the deals are in line with your needs.

Verizon's cost for 8GB shared data is $70.  The cost for unlimited is $110.  If the 8GB plus carryover and safety mode is working for the two of you, there's no need or reason to change.  If you need more data, you'll pay more.  Or you can adjust your usage to get by with what you want to pay.

What do you mean "deal" like AT&T/DirecTV? That wasn't a deal, that was a requirement. If you didn't have either one, you had to purchase BOTH in order to get their unlimited data. You didn't get a discount on either of the services, you simply had to purchase both. I certainly don't consider that a deal. On the contrary, AT&T is now considering matching Verizon by not requiring people to have DirecTV in order to sign up for their unlimited data.

AT&T has already dropped the requirement for customers to have Direct TV in order to get their unlimited plan.

Which they did because of the "deal" Verizon was offering on their new unlimited data plan. Funny how the grass is always greener...

It was a "deal" for people who already subscribed to both services. (Like my wife and I have Verizon Wireless and Fios.) it would be an enticement to get people who hade one service or the other to get both.

Then why did AT&T immediately drop the requirement to have both services if you wanted unlimited as soon as Verizon came out for unlimited. The AT&T unlimited is more expensive and overall a worse deal than the Verizon unlimited with or without DirectTV.

In that case, Verizon is already offering the same "deal" as AT&T. If you have Fios service available in your area, you can sign up for Fios and also for the Verizon Plan Unlimited. There is nothing keeping you from doing so. Additionally, since you want a deal similar to AT&T's deal for the combo, you won't be expecting a discount for having both since AT&T didn't offer a discount for having both services. You simply had to have both services, which is exactly what is available thru Verizon if you have Fios available to you.

Finally, I am curious what "enticement" there was for people to get the other service if in fact they didn't need the service. There certainly wasn't any financial "enticement" since you still had to pay full price for both of the services.
