Verizon Clashes With Library Over Mobile Hotspot Fees

Jon Brodkin writes for Ars Technica, “A small library that lends out mobile hotspots is facing a tough budget decision because one of its borrowers accidentally ran up $880 in roaming fees, and Verizon refuses to waive or reduce the charges. The library has an ‘unlimited’ data plan for the hotspots, but Verizon says it has to pay the $880 to cover less than half a gigabyte of data usage that happened across the border with Canada.”

(Since the article ran, Verizon has backtracked and agreed to credit the library’s account for the full amount of fees.)
