Verizon’s New Share Everything Plans Targeted for Large Families
Verizon has just introduced their newest wireless plan arrangement, the Share Everything Plan. It was back in May that the mobile network operator first announced about their new plans, and already the new Share Everything plans are expected to be fully operational by June 28. These plans will be the only option available to customers beginning their launching, although you still retain the option to stick with your existing plan, if you choose to.
A closer look at the Share Everything plans will reveal that more options are being offered here, making it a suitable option for huge families. The service is designed to accommodate up to 10 phones, allows unlimited text messages and voice minutes among those who share the plans, and also provides a mobile Hotspot service for free.
For individuals, the shared plans translate to higher price rates at $90 for 1GB data from a more affordable $69.99 for 2GB of data. But families will surely benefit significantly from these shared plans; a family with five members, for example, will only need to shell out $270, which already covers 4GB shared among five lines.
In an article posted over at TechCrunch, VP and CMO for Verizon Wireless Tami Erwin believes that Verizon is offering something unique to the market through the Share Everything plans. “Customers asked, and today Verizon Wireless delivered an industry first. 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.”
AT&T, one of the biggest Verizon competitors, has also dropped their unlimited data plans, although subscribers who had access to unlimited plans before they were phased out will still have the option to retain it. However after 3GB or 5GB of use, web access becomes near impossible.
The shared plans from Verizon come with the following rates:
- $50 for 1 GB
- $60 for 2 GB
- $70 for 4 GB
- $80 for 6 GB
- $90 for 8 GB
- $100 for 10 GB
