After this morning's financial report for Verizon, Fran Shammo, their Chief Financial Officer confirmed to investors that shared data plans will launch "this summer." This means that more than likely sometime between July and September the shared data plans will become available to current or new Verizon customers. Although there have been several rumors about Verizon shared data plans for families since last year, we have not had anything concrete about it until now. We still don't know any details, but at least we know "when" we will know more about the plans.
Do you guys think these plans will be priced in a way that adds value to families, or is this just a sneaky way for VZW to transition more people off of WiFi networks onto their 4g LTE service? Share your thoughts.
