Unlimited data plans with Verizon are coming to an end - even for customers who already have an unlimited plan.

Verizon told Wall Street analysts that it is planning to make customers switch to tiered data plans when they upgrade. That includes customers who are grandfathered with an unlimited plan.

The change could come as early as mid-summer.

Verizon's CFO says the plan is "paper, not actual" and there is no word yet on how much the tiered data plan would cost.
