Verizon is extending their free 4G LTE mobile hotspot offer for HTC Thunderbolt, Droid Charge, and LG Revolution users until July 6. The promotion has been going on for a few months and this will mark the second time that the promotion has been extended. Back in May, the free mobile hotspot offer was extended until June 15 due to the delay of the Samsung Droid Charge. Here is what Verizon had to say in regards to the extension of the offer:
Verizon Wireless has extended the Limited Time promotion for Mobile Hotspot and Mobile Broadband Connect on 4G LTE (Long Term Evolution) Smartphones, ThunderBolt by HTC, DROID Charge by Samsung, and Revolution by LG. The following are the Unlimited Hotspot promotion details.
Limited Time promotion available through 7/6/2011 which allows customers unlimited 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot and Mobile Broadband Connect usage until July 6, 2011 with the purchase of a ThunderBolt by HTC, a DROID Charge by Samsung, or a Revolution by LG, with a voice plan and a data package $29.99 or higher.
The $20/GB (Gigabyte) plan will not be available on 4G LTE Smartphones. On July 6, 2011 a software update will remove the Mobile Hotspot offer. A message will be sent to the end user to contact their system administrator to subscribe to Mobile Hotspot.
So, if you’re a user of one of the phones listed above, make sure that you take advantage of this offer. Come July 6, an update will be pushed out to your phone which will remove the offer.
