They still don't have the cheapest plans around, but nobody is going to complain about getting some extra data with their monthly package.
Verizon, which no longer offers an unlimited data plan, doesn't seem to be in a hurry to reintroduce one either. You will have to activate a new phone with a device payment plan on the XL or larger tier through Verizon to qualify, and the extra data will roll out in 2GB doses each month throughout the course of the year. Provided, of course, they remain on that plan, of course. Today, that promo returns for a limited time.
Verizon introduced its simplified size-based data plans previous year to remove the confusion usually associated in choosing the right option. They can still use the extra data in the allotment, but they won't add to it. With the additional 2GB of data, which is available for the lifetime of the plan, customers can upgrade that to 14GB or 20GB.
Unfortunately we're not yet sure how long this will be around, so if you had plans to upgrade or add new lines soon you'll want to do it as soon as you can.
Verizon Wireless subscribers who do not get their fill of free data and hanker for more can now whoop in glee! Why?
According to Verizon, the offer applies to each new smartphone upgraded and is shareable across all devices on the same account, including tablets and connected devices.
