Verizon’s CTO Fran Shammo revealed that Verizon Wireless will be bringing shared family data plans to Verizon Wireless customers by the middle of this year. The rumor has been circulating for a while, Shammo said that Verizon has been working on this for a year, so that everything will be smooth once the shared family plans are launched.
Unfortunately the rollout of these shared plans will begin with current 4G subscribers, so 3G users, looks like it’s time to upgrade.
Documents have been found that show that starting November 1, Sprint is moving toward a tiered data plan for Mobile Hotspot and Mobile Broadband. The plan looks to have three different options; a 3GB, 5GB, and 10GB of allowed data, going over you tiered data will incur you serious charges. Does this change by Sprint, the Now Network, spell doom for unlimited data plans for their mobile phones? At the moment that answer is no, but similar plans were outlined by other major carriers and with the addition of the iPhone how long can Sprint’s network hold on.
