Businesses looking to avoid big expenses for new devices will now be able to defray upfront costs through Verizon’s device payment options, the carrier said Thursday.
Big Red said small businesses can now spread the cost of new devices over a 24-month period.
For a company seeking to activate 20 new Droid Turbo 2 devices, the upfront cost in the first month would drop from nearly $4,000 to $520, while monthly access fees would drop from $35 per phone to $15 per phone. The customer would then tack on a new monthly device payment of $26 to their bill.
The carrier also unveiled two simplified business plan options, The Verizon Plan for accounts with 25 lines or less and the Flexible Business Plan for accounts with 26 lines or more. Both plans offer unlimited talk and text, unlimited international messaging from the U.S. and access to corporate email through Good for Enterprise, Exchange ActiveSync or Lotus Notes Traveler.
The Verizon Plan starts at $175 per month for 25 GB of shared data and runs up to $700 per month for 100 GB of shared data for 25 devices or less.
The Flexible Business Plan starts at $65 per month for 2GB of data and runs through $105 per month for 10 GB of data for businesses with 26 devices or more.
