On Tuesday, Verizon announced a new data plan it’s calling the “Everything Plan.” The plan, which goes into effect on June 28 of this year, shares unlimited voice and texting over all devices on your account and shares data for up to ten devices. That means you’ll have all Verizon devices, be they phones, tablets or anything else, on one plan. Here’s how the pricing works: there will be a monthly line access charge for each device, ranging from $10 for a tablet to $40 for a smartphone. Still with me? Good. Data will cost between $50 and $100 depending on which plan you choose, somewhere between 1GB and 10GB. And if you use more than 10GB? Add an extra $10 for every 2GB you go over. I did the math and under the new plan, I’ll be paying about the same as I am now. What does the change mean to you? It all depends on which devices you use and how much data you use.
