Verizon Wireless customers who sign up for Verizon local and long-distance will receive unlimited calling between their phones and other on-network customers, from their mobiles or home phones.
This is an incentive for Verizon users to unify their communications packages into what VZN is calling Freedom ONE-BILL (their caps, not ours). In addition to landline and mobile calling, the packages include DSL.
In all, this is the only real way that the phone companies can compete head-to-head with the cable companies, and as there are substantial savings inherent in these packages, they’re win/win for consumers, for the most part. The only reservation we have is that it does take some choice away from the consumer, something we’re very against.
