Verizon Wireless today announced the addition of Share Everything plans. They’re essentially family plans, allowing you, mom, dad, and big or little brother or sister to share from a pool of unlimited voice minutes and text messages, plus a specified amount of data. The service also offers a free mobile HotSpot service to any device on the plan. Share Everything plans support up to ten phones.
This is good news for Verizon, who has been struggling to find common ground with customers on data pricing.
“Customers asked, and today Verizon Wireless delivered an industry first,” said Tami Erwin, VP and CMO for Verizon Wireless. “Share Everything Plans are the new standard for wireless service. They are simple; customers no longer have to think about their voice and message plans, because both are unlimited.”
The plans are available June 28, and you can feel free to learn more here.
“AT&T has also said it is working on plans that will allow such sharing, though it has yet to detail its plans.” – Ina Fried
The pricing of the new plan:
Example: In my family we have 6 smartphones. That would mean $240 for device access. We use about 8GB of data which adds another $90. For a total of $330 for six people ($55/person).
