    Some folks over at Phonearena created a handy comparison chart showcasing the differences between the Verizon and AT&T shared data plans (shown in the chart above). For the most part, they seem fairly even, although in some cases (depending on the number of devices) one or the other is cheaper. The main difference comes with the type of devices that you use on your plan, since AT&T charges the same for tablets as they do for their phones, whereas Verizon only charges an additional $10 bucks per month for each tablet. Here's a quote with some more info,

    That's a well made chart, even though I already made the decision to switch to verizon :icon_ rocker:

    At Sprint we're supposed to point out how much more our customers are getting for the price compared to the competition but in many cases the customers just hear, "we're ripping you off but less than the competition."

    At least AT&T customers get to keep their unlimited data even when they upgrade. Let's see if VZW counters that by offering the same, it would definitely make a majority of us (though we are a small community) quite happy.

    Yeah, but AT&T throttles their unlimited data users after 2 GBs. I look at this and think, "How is this not collusion?" The prices are so similar. AT&T comes out only $5 cheaper in most cases.

    I don't know why anyone would choose either of these plans going forward, when such cheaper options are available via pre-paid companies. Then again, I told my parents I plan on leaving their plan and going with a pre-paid Nexus, and they said, "You're going to spend $350 on a phone?!" :icon_rolleyes:

    It's only collusion if Verizon and AT&T met, discussed, and came to an agreement how to price the shared data. If Verizon came up with the pricing on their own, and AT&T simply copied them, then that isn't collusion.
