Following in Verizon's footsteps, AT&T says it will introduce wireless plans that allows subscribers to connect up to 10 devices.
Connected phones get unlimited calling and texting, and all devices get wireless data access. The devices tap into a limited pool of data usage, which get renewed each month.
Verizon introduced its "Share Everything" plans on June 28, replacing nearly all of its traditional phone plans. AT&T says its "Mobile Share" plans will debut in late August, but it's keeping its traditional, individual phone plans.
AT&T Inc.'s prices track closely with those of Verizon. One smartphone with 1 gigabyte of data will cost $85 per month with AT&T, compared with $90 with Verizon. Two smartphones and a tablet with 6 gigabytes of shared data will cost $170 on either carrier.
