$75 ETF? Dang, how long ago was this? I thought they were significantly more now a days...
Anyway, unlimited data is only going to be available for VZW if you start to buy all your phones off contract, so full Verizon price. Don't think they're not going to gouge the crap out of the upcoming phones because of this. I don't see it being too far off where Verizon top-tier phones are $800-900 off contract, while the same phone is still $550-600 on other carriers.
They'll get theirs, you can bet on it.
This may be bearable for a single line, but once you start adding on a line for a wife, or whoever, the cost will be way too prohibitive to retain unlimited data.
