Verizon Demands $880 For 440MB Of Roaming Data

If only there was some way Verizon could come up with enough money to forgive this debt.  Oh well, if someone has to be bankrupted by this situation, it should definitely be a small town library that lends Verizon hotspots to local residents with limited internet access.

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.
