During an interview with CNET, AT&T’s mobile business CEO Ralph de la Vega revealed the company would soon introduce a family data plan. This would allow customers to buy a sharable data bucket, letting that purchased bandwidth be used across multiple devices.

de la Vega told CNET that he was “very comfortable” with the plan being developed and that he knew how the plan would be structured. He did not offer any details on pricing, timing, or bucket sizes.

Verizon is expected to offer a family data plan soon, possibly this summer.
