Verizon adds 500MB Share Everything tier
With the Motorola Moto X introduction hogging the news on Thursday, Verizon slipped in some word about a new tier for its Share Everything plan. The new tier gives users 500MB of data each month for $40. That undercuts the previous low end of $50 monthly for 1GB of data. The plan gives users unlimited talk and text and then the amount of data that the customer contracts for. Besides paying for the amount of data you want to use each month, each smartphone costs $40 and each tablet costs $10.

According to a report in the Wall Street Journal, Verizon's plan remains the most expensive with T-Mobile on the other end of the spectrum. For 500MB of data a month with unlimited talk and text, Verizon's $80 price is $30 a month more expensive than T-Mobile's price. Over the course of a 24 month contract, that works out to $720 more for Verizon's plan. Even taking into account that you are paying full price for your handset, T-Mobile's price still works out cheaper.
