Verizon strongly rumored to bring carryover data, free roaming, throttled unlimited data

Early last year, Verizon took a strong stand against carryover data even if this would cost them subscribers. Now it seems like they're coming around.

T-Mobile has been pretty aggressive about bringing its users services they love like Binge On and rollover data, and they’ve also been pretty aggressive about pointing out how their competitors fail to do so. Not so long ago, Verizon execs bristled at the Uncarrier’s guerrilla tactics by taking a stance that, as industry leaders, they would stay the course with traditional plans rather than shift to these much beloved plans.

Verizon: no data roll-over, we don't care if customers leave as a result

Well, now it sounds like the United States’ largest carrier is changing their tune a bit. If this rumor is true, then Verizon will soon be joining the likes of T-Mobile and AT&T by adding carryover data to their plans. The same source reveals that “big red” could also be introducing throttled data on XL and XXL plans, as well as free roaming to Mexico and Canada on these same plans. Smaller plans can gain these services for additional fees.

This word comes to us via reddit, where users Verizonguy12345 and czfi identified an image posted on Verizon’s “testman” page, a site the company has a history of using to give promos and announcements a trial run before they are set live. This announcement is rumored to hit the media on Friday, but without official word, we still have to take this rumor with a grain of salt. If it turns out to be true, this could be a major boon for millions of subscribers.
