The American Council on Capital Markets recently released a report that found that consumers can save an average of $3.60 per month for data on Verizon by subscribing the carrier to their data plans.
The report noted that a full month of data on one of the plans costs about $10.00, or $3 a month.
However, it also found that those savings can be quite substantial.
The Council on Business and Economic Development (CBED) analyzed Verizon’s monthly data plans for subscribers in the United States.
Its analysis found that a month’s worth of data would cost $23.30 to $26.80, depending on what data plan customers choose to subscribe to.
Verizon has a $30 data credit for the first month of customers’ contracts, and then a $5 monthly data fee to be paid in the second month.
The study also found consumers who subscribed to Verizon’s data plans in the first year would pay about $13.70 to $17.30 a month if they paid Verizon the full monthly rate.
The council noted that the average Verizon customer is not paying the full price for the data plan they are using, but they would have paid more.
The CBED’s report said the average data bill would be about $6.20 for the year, but the average cost per month was much higher.
For example, the Council’s analysis said that for a full year, customers would pay $21.40 a month, or nearly $3 more than the average for Verizon’s plans.
CBED estimates that customers would save $2,872 a year in the same amount of time by subscribing Verizon to their plans.
That’s a savings of about $3 per month, and the Council said that they could save an additional $3 billion in the year.

The American council also said that consumers could save more by subscribing in the middle of the month.
For a full-year, the council said that customers could save $19.80 a month in the following year, or an additional amount of money than by subscribing at the end of the year when their data costs are already higher.
Verizon has made some changes to its data plans recently.
Verizon now offers three data plans, with prices starting at $30 a year, $50 a year and $70 a year.
Customers can also opt for a “triple-data” package, which includes a two-month data package for $70 and four-month plans for $80 a year each.
The company also now offers two different data plans that start at $50 per month and $100 a month each.
Verizon says customers can pay for their data services with their phones, or pay with a credit card or wire transfer.
The service has always been available in the U.S., but Verizon says that customers can also sign up with a “special” Verizon credit card that allows customers to receive unlimited, paid-for data.
That special Verizon credit is not available to customers who are new to Verizon.
The American council said it has already seen a reduction in Verizon customers who have opted to opt out of their plans, which the agency says is a positive sign.
