Verizon Wireless on Monday, attempting to add more value to its plans in an increasingly competitive smartphone market, announced that customers who sign up for new plans will receive an extra gigabyte of data for free. You’re probably shrugging your shoulders right now, at least if you’re on an unlimited plan, but this could be a nice incentive for families sharing valuable (and expensive) data.
Verizon said that you’ll need to upgrade your existing smartphone or activate a new one on a More Everything plan to take advantage of the deal. It also only applies to More Everything data plans that have at least 1GB of data per month already, meaning in some cases you’ll actually be doubling the data available at zero cost. You’ll get the extra 1GB of data for two years, which is the length of a typical smartphone contract — provided you keep the phone active.
