  1. I think it is a smart idea of Verizon. Offering more and services that compliment each other is a good idea and for sure will bring them revenue.

  2. This looks like a wise move rather than a marketing stunt. Verizon, like AT&T, needs to offload as much web traffic from their 3G network as possible. On average, subscribers who use they smartphones for accessing the web consume 4-5 times more outdoor (3G) data than subscribers who just use it for corporate wireless email. However, they don’t pay 4-5 times more… hence the need for offloading web traffic.

    1. Agreed. I don’t think it is a bad idea, I just find it funny that after dissing Cablevision for its efforts, Verizon is going to do precisely the same. Of course, not to mention their marketing messages mocking AT&T and other 3G networks. Nevertheless, I do use their 3G card and Verizon never fails me in providing solid coverage.
