Since U.S. carriers have discontinued unlimited data plans, it’s become a chore for consumers and businessman alike to have to monitor their data usage. With caps on data, we now do our best to use Wi-Fi as often as possible so as to avoid any sort of overage charges.
It seems as though Verizon might just be working on some sort of combined data plan to alleviate some of the pain caused by data frugality.
FierceWireless related some of the information Verizon’s CEO Lowell McAdam provided at the UBS Global Media and Communications Conference:
McAdam said that customers who are dealing with four or five screens–smartphones, tablets and USB modems for laptops and the like–do not want to pay for all of those devices on separate bills, and neither does Verizon. ‘I think in 2012 we will see it,’ McAdam said at the UBS Global Media and Communications Conference. ‘We have been working on this for a couple of years. Getting to one bill and getting to account-level pricing is our goal.’
Whether or not we will see this change of billing within the near future is questionable. And how it will work? We’re in the dark. But, according to FierceWireless, it would seem as though “executives from AT&T Mobility (NYSE:T) and Sprint Nextel (NYSE:S) have hinted at such plans as well.”
