    A reliable source on Reddit posted about some upcoming changes to Verizon. With some deeper digging into Verizon's test website

    it looks to be rollover data, usage in USA as well as Mexico and Canada at no charge, and a new 'safety mode".

    Safety mode throttles your data after you use your allotment instead of charging you a per gig overage. Still no word on the throttle speed, but I'm guessing it'll be 128kb.

    I like that idea. Some may not want an instant charge for more data and could deal with being slowed first.

    I am also a big fan of rollover data. It's kind of messed up for them to take what you paid for. I mean I'm reasonable in the sense there should be a limit so people can't stack non stop (like a few months worth) but that's better than "here is overage on your last day and the next day you new cycle starts so that 1 GB extra we tacked on is now gone due to a new cycle".

    Some may not want to pay the really high price to obtain an unlimited line.

    With the other carriers coming out with rollover, I expected Verizon to do the same at some point. The question for me is if I'll tack on to existing plans. I'm currently grandfathered on a 10 GB/$60 share plan, so moving to a new plan would be a loss of value for me.

    New Verizon plan of course. I think the price structure is going to change. Possible double data promo again. But this is all a rumor. These changes will take effect on the 1st

    Keep in mind that unlimited data they are referring to here is probably at very slow speeds,similar to tmobile after the high speed allotment

    I'm all to familiar with the throttling down scenario I'm on HughesNet satellite for my internet. A whopping 10GB/month for $63 and that gets you a whopping 9-10/mb download speed (on a good day). You go over and try to do anything more than email or casual browsing you'll get FAPped (Fair Access Policy). They slow you down to dialup or slower till the end of your billing cycle.

    I'm more interested in the roll over data.

    "... Possible double data promo again...."

    I would love to get this promo, have they offered it in the past? Is it just like it sounds, doubles your data? What are the odds this will happen?

    Looks like it got pushed back until Monday so it can be a "4th of July special". Probably a good idea.

    I didn't see any extra cost involved in "roll over" data. Will that feature be "free"?

    I would welcome a similar "Rollover data Plan" Here in Canada too..
    C'mon Verizon expand your service to CA and Mexico-Hehe!..
    Definitely this rollover data is great for Mobile users

    My carrier in CA is Telus and this mo. From my 300 airtime mins
    used 200 only & from 2GB of data-Used 1500 MBs. I paid
    for it and there's No way to carry over-unused services
    next month..it charge $7.00 daily to use Phs in Usa
