appears that the added a internaional data roaming plan - 100MB @ 25.00 and lowered the overage rate if you have the plan and exceed the limit
To purchase a Global Data plan, customers are required to have a domestic data package and international eligibility, which requires minimum payment history.
Customers who require more than 100 MB of data while traveling will receive a notification via text message when an additional 100 MB of data for $25 has been automatically made available to them once they exceed their initial allotment.
Customers traveling to countries not covered under the Global Data Plan, but within Verizon Wireless global coverage areas, will be charged at Pay Per Use rates of $0.02 per KB.
And those lower rates are valid on cruise ships too. The current at&t data package rates are not good on cruises which is odd since at&t has a big stake in the company that runs roaming on many cruise ships.
