Verizon tightens bond with FiOS users by doubling wireless data allotments

Verizon (NYSE: VZ) is looking to enhance its relationship with existing and new FiOS customers in the Northeast by doubling data allotments for its wireless services on the eve of completing its sale of its wireline properties in three states to Frontier.

When the telco completes the Frontier deal, Verizon's FiOS footprint will be concentrated in the Northeast and it has maintained that it won't be building out service into any new areas.

Under the new regional, limited-time promotion that doubles the monthly data buckets for users with its XL or XXL plans who sign up for FiOS, the operator's fiber-based wired Internet service. The offer increases the XL plan to 24 GB per month and the XXL plan to 36 GB per month. FierceWireless has this article.
