Then, you select how much data you need to share. The lowest plan available is 300MB for $40 monthly with 1GB available for $50, and 4GB available for $70. If your household or company runs through a ton of data, 10GB is offered for $100 while the largest plan is the 75GB "Whale-of-a-byte" for $560 a month. Sounds like one of those concoctions at a local ice cream parlor. If you go over your data cap, you are charged $15 for an additional GB.
If you add a hotspot, modem or tablet to a shared data plan, the monthly device connection charge is waived until the end of 2013. And if you don't need unlimited talk, U.S. Cellular will sell you its "Talk and Text Only Plans" that starts with 450 minutes of talk and unlimited text for $50. This plan is for individuals. Families can receive 1000 minutes of talk and unlimited text for $100. That covers two lines with each additional line costing an additional $20.
