Verizon outbound toll-free SMS surcharge


Maria Piro


Verizon Wireless has announced that as of Tuesday, September 1st, all outbound toll-free SMS messages sent to their network will begin incurring a surcharge of $0.0025. These surcharges will appear on your Bandwidth invoice.

When will I see these surcharges on my invoice?

You’ll see the surcharges from 9/1-9/30 on your November 1st invoice. 

Have other carriers announced similar surcharges?

At this time, we have no indication from other carriers that additional toll-free surcharges are coming, but they have the ability to implement them at any time. We’re working hard to keep you up-to-date and will provide more information as we receive news from carriers.
