Verizon Communications has taken a step beyond the single bill for wireline and wireless and a step closer to true wireline/wireless network integration--though it's certainly not there yet. The company's newest bundle, starting atÂ $59.99, offers unlimited local and long-distance from a home phone, with free in-network and home phone-to-mobile phone calls, and 200 calling minutes.
The offer sounds a lot like AT&T's Unity plan. Expect the nation's largest telcos to continue to take baby steps toward deeper, more integrated fixed-mobile converged services until customer demand becomes more apparent.
