AT&T Mobility CEO Ralph de la Vega made the statement in an interview with C|Net, ahead of the CTIA wireless trade show happening this week.
This is a 180-degree turn from just a few months ago. Then, de la Vega said he was uncertain about any implementation of family data plans. Now, however, he said that the company knows how to structure the Family Data Plan.
He did not, however, provide any specific details on timing or pricing.
The assumption would be that a family data plan would cost less than several data plans paid for, one-off, for each device.
One thing to remember, however, is that if you are already on a "grandfathered" unlimited data plan, any change your data plan structure will mean losing that unlimited data plan. That would include either of these family data packages (Verizon or AT&T).
