US Cellular is one of the only major US carriers that hasn’t offered shared data packages for consumers. They’ve finally caught up today, though, and their new share plans are officially available to consumers. However, like how the other carriers are handling these plans, you aren’t required to move onto these plans if you’re already on older plans.
The pricing is similar to other options you’ll find; 300 MB with unlimited talk and text will run $40 per month, plus a $40 per device access fee. The 1 GB share plan puts you at $90 each month, which seems to be the sweet spot with postpaid individual plans. You can add up to 10 devices onto one of these plans, and lesser devices like feature phones or tablets have cheaper access fees. All in all, nothing revolutionary here, but if you’re a US Cellular customer, it’s nice to have more options. You can check out their full press release below. » Read the rest
