Ah, the wonderful world of wireless carriers. You can almost guarantee that if one makes a move, the others will soon follow. We're still hoping that AT&T and Verizon will succumb to peer pressure and resume offering unlimited data plans, but until that day comes, you can look forward to lots of fine tuning of their tiered share plans. The latest move comes from Verizon, which has introduced its lowest cost offering yet: a 500MB shared plan that runs $40 per month. This rings in at $10 less than its 1GB shared data plan, but when combined with a single smartphone, you're looking at paying $70 per month for unlimited talk, text and 500MB of data that's subject to overage fees. Still, this is slightly favorable to AT&T, which just announced a 300MB share plan that also costs $70 once bundled with a smartphone. This certainly presents a cheaper option for some, but it won't be fun keeping such a close eye on the meager data allotment.
