According to Verizon Communications CEO Lowell McAdam, Verizon expects to make shared family data plans available some time in 2012. This is awesome news for customers with multiple data-hungry devices either on their own or in the family as, much like shared voice plans, users will be able to share a data bucket instead of separate plans. While there were no specifics stated, McAdam speculated:
"I think in 2012 we will see it," McAdam said at the UBS Global Media and Communications Conference. "We have been working on this for a couple of years. Getting to one bill and getting to account-level pricing is our goal."
AT&T and Sprint have also hinted at such plans which would surely be a welcome addition across the board. I for one would love shared data plans for my devices (and so would my wallet). So what say you - is this a good thing for Verizon and other carriers? Sound off in the comments!
