It is clear that the carriers in the U.S. are looking for new ways to attract customers. For instance and as part of their latest ‘uncarrier’ move, T-Mobile has started offering a number of freebies like video rentals, pizzas and rides with Lyft to their customers via their T-Mobile Tuesdays app. While this is a more novel approach, other carriers have looked to revamp their plans and introduce better deals. The latest of which could be Verizon.
A screenshot from a Verizon promotion test site is now doing the rounds and if correct, details a number of fundamental plan changes which could be taking effect soon. The biggest aspect is the screenshot suggests Verizon will introduce a new ‘Carryover Data’ offer. If this sounds familiar then it should as the basis of this one seems to be much in line with other similar plan benefits like AT&T’s Rollover Data. According to the information, “Your data is yours to keep. Carryover Data automatically rolls over your unused gigs to the end of the following month”. The promo also notes that this deal will be available with all plans. Another new detailed feature is 'Safety Mode'. It seems this one is designed for those who end up close or using up their monthly data allowance as Safety Mode will allow users to continue using data and without being charged, but at a reduced speed. According to the details this will come packaged with Verizon’s XL and XXL plans and will cost users $5 per month on S, M or L plans. Last but not least, it seems free roaming in Canada and Mexico will also be coming to Verizon customers. At least to Verizon XL and XXL plan customers for free. S, M and L customers will also be able to take advantage of the roaming, but at an additional charge.
It is important to stress that at the moment none of these details are confirmed. However, the screenshot does certainly look to be one which seems legitimate. The screenshot comes with the suggestion that these deals are due to be announced this Friday. If that is the case, then it won't be too long before the announcement comes through. In the meantime you can check out the screenshot below.
