Q: Does this mean I can drop my home DSL service or cable modem?
A: Maybe, if you're a light Internet user. Adding a data stick or Verizon-connected "hotspot" device to your plan will cost just $20 per month. But home PCs often use a lot of data, especially if you like to watch Internet video. Many households use more than 10 gigabytes per month, the maximum allotment under Verizon's plan. That much data costs $100 per month.
