DSL Reports Forum. There are two different emails. The initial email reads:
"We are announcing the acquisition by Verizon of the Millenicom customers who use their service. There should be no interruption with your Internet connection, they will be in contact with you regarding plan options.
Please accept our most sincere appreciation for the opportunity to be your Internet provider.
There's a second email which "corrects" the initial one. The only substantive change seems to be that the change is no longer described as an acquisition.
"This is to correct an earlier email that was sent to you regarding your service. Verizon Wireless, the carrier providing your wireless service, may be contacting you about options for your ongoing service. Going forward your relationship will be directly with Verizon Wireless. Millenicom will no longer have any role concerning your account and Millenicom does not now or will have any relationship with Verizon Wireless. Thank you and we apologize for any inconvenience this notice may cause."
Millenicom's Verizon based service is popular with RVers, long haul truckers and people who live in locations where wired broadband isn't available. Millenicom initially offered 20 GB of LTE data for $69.99. In April the price was raised to $89.99 which is still a better deal than Verizon Prepaid Mobile Broadband which costs about the same ($90) for half the data (10 GB).
At this point, Verizon doesn't seem to have contacted any of Millenicom's customers so we don't know whether Verizon will change plans and pricing. Hopefully current customer's prices will be grandfathered. I've contacted Verizon and will update this post if I learn more.
I tried calling Millenicom to confirm the news and try to find out what happened but their phones, including a 24 hour tech support number, are answered with a message saying they are closed. The Millenicom Web site is up but all products are listed as with out of stock or not available, including the iPads which are T-Mobile based.
For more about Verizon's acquisition of Millenicom's customer base see these DSL Reports Forum and RVNetwork Forum threads and stories on EVDOinfo.com and the RV Mobile Internet Resource Center.
Update 10/26/14: Based on forum posts by Millenicom users on the DSL Reports Forum and the RVNetwork Forum no one seems to have been contacted by Verizon so far. According to a post on the RV Mobile Internet Resource Center all Millenicom accounts should continue working with unlimited data (no 20 GB cap) through at least Nov. 1. But what happens Nov. 2. is anybody's guess.
