Second-gen Moto E’s LTE model also on Verizon prepaid, costs same as Sprint version

From a previous leak, we had found out that the second-gen Motorola Moto E LTE will be hitting Verizon, and that has finally happened. The carrier’s prepaid section is now selling the handset at $99 which is the same price at which Sprint is offering the phone through its own prepaid channels.

It should be noted that this is a no-contract deal, and that’s what makes it attractive. Verizon has revealed that it will be offering flexible plans with the second-gen Motorola Moto E, to help buyers in choosing the right amount of LTE data to suit their needs.
