We heard last year that Verizon would like to implement a shared data plan sometime this year, and according to an anonymous tipster over at Engadget, the new packages could be here sooner rather than later. Training material has made it’s way to Verizon’s internal system (see photo above) that show a new section labeled “account level data plans.” This section shows an account level charge for data allowance plus a $9.99 charge per line.
No clue as to when shared data may become available but it sure beats shelling out $30 per line for data. Of course if you are currently grandfathered into unlimited data then it may not be such a great deal since you would most likely lose that once you switch over! [Engadget]
