Verizon on Monday confirmed it has brought back its 2GB bonus data promotion for users on the XL and XXL plans. Available immediately, both new and existing customers on the 12GB and 18GB data plans will receive extra data each month.
The way it works is pretty simple: all phone lines on either of the two plans receive 2GB of data per month. Sharing across 5 lines? That’s 10GB of extra data on top of the bucket you’re already getting. Verizon will allow up to ten lines on these plans.
According to Verizon, the data can be shared across existing tablets and hotspots but cannot be used for new ones. The bonus data will stay on a user’s account as long as they remain on the XL or XXL plan.
In addition to the extra data, Verizon is offering up to $650 in credits to attract prospective customers. Should you port your number from another carrier, Big Red will pay off your early termination fees and any remaining balances on equipment.
It is not clear how long Verizon will be offering the limited-time 2GB data promotion.
