Verizon has said that it's interested in "sponsored data" as another  
source of revenue. A company can pay Verizon so that phone users can  
browse their websites, watch video clips or download their apps without  
using up their data allotment. Verizon says brands that have signed up  
include Hearst Magazines and AOL, which Verizon owns.

AT&T also launched a sponsored data program two years ago, but  
relatively few companies are participating.
