Verizon to Start Testing Sponsored Data in Coming Days

Remember the net neutrality issue?  Why aren’t people making noise about this?

Sponsored data, as the name implies, allows consumers to access certain content without having to eat into their own data plans. Instead, a third party pays for it.  Verizon is working with just a few partners in the testing phase, but said next year this feature will be available to all comers at an affordable rate.
