If you’re among the rare few on Verizon Wireless with a grandfathered unlimited plan, then listen up: the carrier is about to issue a price hike that will increase your monthly payments by as much a $20.

According to The Verge, the $20 increase will begin in November for customers who are out of contract and will bring the total monthly cost for a single unlimited data plan to $59.99 before adding in voice/text fees. The price change will go into effect for everyone else as their contracts expire. You’ll still have unlimited data, though, which is worth far more than $59.99 for a lot of people.

As big a change as this might seem, it won’t affect that many customers. The Verge said only 1 percent of Verizon’s customers remain on unlimited data plans; everyone else has adopted the carrier’s data buckets.
