According to PhoneArena, Verizon
is planning to announce shared family data plans for smartphone and tablet users. Unfortunately, there’s no information to be had as far as as actual plans or pricing goes. Verizon has mentioned a couple of times in the past that it intends to offer family data plans that would allow several users to share a bucket of data, so the fact that they’re coming is no surprise, but it’s good to see that Big Red is still hard at work at getting those plans ready.
There’s still no word on pricing or how these new plans will affect ‘unlimited’ users but it’s pretty safe to assume you will lose your ‘unlimited’ data should you decide to sign-up for a shared family data plan. We’ll keep you updated if we learn more, but it looks like we’re getting close.
