Speaking at the All Things Digital D9 conference today, AT&T CEO Ralph de la Vega said that his company was "working on" introducing shared data plans. The CEO however, could not provide a timetable for when the new plans would arrive, so it may be a while until the company actually announces anything.
AT&T would not be alone. As Verizon CEO Fran Shammo revealed last month, Verizon, too, plans to introduce shared data plans for its customers. This would allow a fixed amount of data to be split among various devices, including phones and tablets.
Of course, all of this is something that the companies likely should have offered from the beginning. Better late than never, right?
