This week, Verizon announced the launch of its long-awaited shared data plan. Dubbed “Share Everything,” the new plan allows you to purchase data in chunks of 1 to 10GB and share it among all your family’s devices, from smart phones to tablets or even netbooks. In a world where carriers have traditionally charged separate data fees for each device you own, the new pricing structure sounds like a breath of fresh air. However, if you do the math, you might end up spending more money than what you're paying for Verizon’s current lineup of voice and data options.
