AT&T Shared Data Plans; Sets Launch for Late August

AT&T has stepped into the shared data plan game with customers wishing to pair multiple devices with a single data allowance of up to 20GB per month.

The Texas-based carrier said it will start selling AT&T Mobile Share plans in late August. The plans will allow for up to 10 shared devices, but they must include at least one smartphone.

As for data, the plan starts at $40 for 1 gigabyte and jumps to $70 for 4 gigabytes. It also offers 6 GB for $90, 10 GB for $120, 15 GB for $160.

For the largest data option of 20GB users can expect to pay $200 per month. Other devices can be added at various monthly fees, with tablets gaining access for $10.

AT&T’s Mobile Share has plenty in common with Verizon’s recently announced Share Everything package.

As for data, Verizon starts off more expensive, offering 1 GB for $50. However, its plans get cheaper after 6 GB, which go for $80. The Share Everything plans go up to 10 GB for $100.

David Christopher, AT&T Mobility’s chief marketing officer said that, with these new plans, the more you share, the more you save.

With AT&T, the customers will have a choice between Mobile Share, a traditional or family plan. The Mobile Share is said to be launching in August.
