One questions we often hear concerns discounts for employees of companies that use a particular brand of wireless service. The truth is, most companies have such discount.
At some point, someone in wireless discovered that extending the same or similar discount to the employees of a company as they do for the company itself was a good idea. Employees become more loyal to a wireless carrier when given a discount for their employment, and the word of mouth inside the workplace is an added bonus.
If you haven’t been around the Internet phone sites in a little while, you might have missed a few articles about Verizon Wireless testing a promotional plan with select customers (as in, select markets) called Talk and Text Plus. In a nutshell, the plan reduces the monthly price plan of someone using a single or primary line with unlimited text AND a smartphone with unlimited data. This reduction is done with a special price plan that credits such a user $20 a month, effectively making their unlimited smartphone data plan $10 each month, and creating a pricing structure similar to Sprint’s all-inclusive data plans.
This promotional program has caused a bit of a stir in some online forums, due to the fact that not every representative in Verizon knows about it, not every representative even has access to it, and only specific markets were targeted. So, while thousands of people are discovering the discount through online sources, not everyone is eligible to receive the discounted plan.
