Verizon’s assorted data plans will likely be seeing data cap improvements alongside increased price points come tomorrow.

The wireless company is expected to announce the changes alongside access to unlimited usage through a new feature dubbed ‘Safety Mode’, rollover data options, and more.

A number of current plans are expected to increase by $5 making the entry-level plan come in at $35, but it will also now come with an increased 2GB of data up from 1GB previously. Other plans will see similar tweaks.

The “M” plan will go up by $5 to $50 a month, while its data will rise from 3GB to 4GB. The “L” plan will go up by $10 to $70 a month, while data increases from 6GB to 8GB. The “XL” plan will go up by $10 to $90 a month, but you’ll get 16GB, up from 12GB before. Lastly, the “XXL” plan will cost $10 more at $110 a month, but you will get 24GB instead of 18GB.

In addition, Verizon’s My Verizon mobile app will be upgraded with a new feature that helps customers avoid overage fees by activating a “Safety Mode”, which will enable unlimited data usage at capped speeds. That feature is expected to be available to customers on an XL or XXL plan and to others for an additional $5 a month.

finally, it’s also been reported that Verizon is planning a rollover data program as well as improved plans for calls to Canada and Mexico alongside the upcoming changes.
