In a recent interview with CNET, AT&T Mobility CEO Ralph de la Vega stated that he felt very “comfortable” with the upcoming shared plans. He was less enthusiastic about the idea back in January thinking there would be a lot of IT work and potential billing issues to sort out. Along with fears of how they planned to subsidize future handset pricing with a family data plan.
Seems as though many of his concerns have been worked out. He is now saying AT&T knows exactly how these plans will be structured and work. No official pricing or release timeline has been mentioned yet, but Vega did make mention of them launching in a coming months. They might just beat Verizon to the punch on this one.
To all of you guys though, what are your first impressions and thoughts? Will they come out and offer such a small price variance that it seem pointless, or will they make some great plans that truly will save you some cash?
