Verizon shared data plans going live, soon

Verizon shared data plans going live, soon Verizon has confirmed it will launch its shared data plans "by midsummer."
Announced last year, the offer will let subscribers with more than one device pay a single monthly fee to get access for all their gadgets.

"We believe that [the shared data] plan, the way we have it designed, will enable our customers to easily connect other devices to that plan," Executive Vice president and Chief Financial Officer Fran Shammo said.

A prime example of who could benefit from the service is iPhone and iPad owners, who currently have to pay twice for data for their two iDevices and may use one device more than the other, wasting bandwidth every month.

The company did not give a specific date or price on the plans.

These 'shared' plans not only end up burning my ass but end up leaving me with the short end of the stick. Every time I have someone on my plan they end up using the lion's share of all the minutes (as per the phone, seeing as a data plan didn't exist) so when I needed to use them, we're all out.

Thus, we get tagged with overage & I'm the asshole. Not that I'm entirely foreign to moniker, but I would certainly like to legitimize its branding.

Basically, I see this wondrous breakthrough as being nothing more than another venture into supporting lawyers in divorce court.
