CINCINNATI – Family Motor Coach Association (FMCA), an international organization for families who own motorhomes, announced a new wireless internet plan that provides group members an affordable way to stay connected as they travel. FMCA says the association negotiated a special member-only rate for Verizon unlimited 4G LTE data service and a mobile hotspot. The plan costs $49.99 per month, plus taxes and fees, and is available to members who lock in this rate by signing a two-year agreement with Verizon. The hotspot costs just $0.01.
The association says users can enjoy up to 25GB of high-speed data each month, and data speeds for usage in excess of 25GB will be reduced for the remainder of the billing period. To take advantage of this special offer, an FMCA member, must be paid in full on association dues for at least two years at the start of the service period.
