Starting tomorrow, Verizon Wireless will cap the amount of data its mobile users are allowed to download for its formerly unlimited $30 wireless data plan.

The company will also introduce much more expensive plans for users who want to download more data.

The changes will only affect newly enrolled customers, meaning today is the last day people can sign up for an unlimited plan.

AT&T did away with unlimited data plans last year. T-Mobile still offers unlimited downloading, but throttles down users who download a lot of data. Only Sprint Nextel still offers an unlimited data plan with no strings attached.

Starting tomorrow, Verizon users can buy 5 gigabytes per month for $50 or 10 gigabytes for $80. Verizon will charge $10 per gigabyte after that.
