Three new Verizon Wireless monthly data plans, starting at $30 for 2GB, will be launched Thursday.

On July 7, Verizon will start offering three smartphone data plans that are priced from $30 for 2GB per month. The other plans are priced at $50 for 5GB and $80 for 10 GB, according to Brenda Raney, a Verizon spokeswoman.

The three smartphone tiers also apply to other "feature" cell phones, but feature phones will get a smaller fourth tier that is $10 for 75 MB per month, she said via email.

Users going over the limits of their plan will be charged $10 per extra 1GB.

Current contracts are not impacted, and existing customers who upgrade to a new smartphone and new contracts can keep the current $30 monthly unlimited data plan.
