Late last year it was reported that Verizon was entertaining the idea of introducing shared data plans for their customers. Not much else was known, but after AT&T had announced similar plans, Verizon realized that they needed to adopt this growing demand.
Fast forward to 2012 and low-and-behold, a training deck has surfaced showcasing the new packages that are about to be introduced. According to an Engadget tipster the new section apparently shows an account level charge for data allowance and a $9.99 charge per line for family plans.
As for a release date, no dates have been made official, so stay tuned for updates.
