Verizon has been considering a move to shared data packages for a while. After all, most people don't really need the unlimited data package. And usage can vary widely between months. Why not save a bit by splitting a few GBs with loved ones?
Android Life has since heard that changes won't come before July 7th, when the 4G LTE hotspot promotion ends. We're not sure if that means right after July 7th, or some time after. Either way, it's good to know we'll be able to customize our plans a little better.
