Verizon to offer unlimited and rollover data?A report says Verizon is about to get a lot more competitive with T-Mobile and AT&T with a new plan.
Unlimited and rollover data coming to Verizon? The consumers found an image on a Verizon test site that shows off a new Verizon plan. It would include a safety mode. Instead of getting hit by an overage fee when you hit a data, safety mode would allow you to stay connected at a slower speed. This throttle mode is included with certain Verizon plans namely the XL or the XXL plans. If your plan is smaller than XL, the safety mode would cost 5 dollars per month. An extra Gig at LTE speeds normally costs about 15 dollars. Arguably that would be similar to the unlimited plans offered by T-Mobile and Sprint. Verizon's new plan would also include what Verizon calls carry over data. Any unused data would roll over to the next month. Roll over data would apply to any of Verizon's normal plans. Fun fact AT&T owns the rights to the term Rollover Data in this sense. Unlimited calling in the U.S. to Mexico and Canada would be included in XL and XXL plans. That same feature would cost an extra fee for others. None of that information has been made official by Verizon yet. A Verizon subreddit says a huge problem will launch on July first. However, a Verizon spokes person told CNet. "we're going to have some fireworks next week". Stay tuned. If and when any of that gets official, we'll have it right here.
