If you have in-home internet and voice services as part of the Lifeline program, all charges will also be waived for the next two months, meaning two months of free service for Lifeline users.

First of all, the free 15GB of data is available to customers from March 25 through April 30.

For Verizon consumer prepaid and consumer and small business postpaid metered customers, 15GB will be added to your current standalone or shared data plan, which can be used for smartphone, hotspot or other connected device use.

iPhones and Androids on Verizon's cellular wireless network will get an additional 15GB of mobile data for free. It's not the completely unlimited access you might hope for, but it could help you stay online if you depend on your phone's data for work.

It's worth keeping in mind that Verizon is forgoing excess costs, yet isn't getting rid of data caps for mobilecustomers In a different article, the firm keeps in mind that "most of the company's wireless customers are on unlimited wireless plans", as well as claims that customers that aren't are "encouraged to connect to Wi-Fi hotspots whenever available" as Wi-Fi links do not count versus data use.

Verizon has also chose to waive late fees and overage charges for residential and small business customers affected by COVID-19.

What's more, Verizon also said that it's temporarily waiving late fees and that it won't cut off service for individuals who are now behind on their monthly payments.

If you are interested in the Lifeline service, new subscribers that join after April 3 will see a $20 discount on monthly fees. For small businesses, as long as you have 50 lines or less, you too will get the data boost.
