All four major U.S. wireless carriers have lifted data limits or overage charges for subscribers in the path of the storm.

Sprint Corp. (S) said it will waive call, text and data overage fees through Sept. 25 for customers in North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia.

T-Mobile US Inc. (TMUS) and AT&T Corp. (T) have also said they will provide free calling, texting and data to customers in the storm's path for an unspecified period of time. AT&T extended payment due dates for customers of its pay-as-you-go brand, Cricket, who may be unable to get to stores to pay their bills because of the storm.

Verizon Communications Inc. (VZ) customers in certain parts of Georgia, Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina will receive unlimited domestic calls, texting and data through Sept. 17, the company said this week.

Verizon also lifted speed restrictions for first responders in the Carolinas, Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Maryland, Virginia and Tennessee.

Wireless carriers have deployed backup generators and engineers to areas likely to be hard hit and some are prepared to deploy drones to provide temporary coverage after the storm.
