Submission + - New Mobile Plan Pools Data on Unlimited Devices

Hugh Pickens writes writes: "PC Magazine reports that Ting, a new reseller of Sprint’s voice, 3G and WiMax services, has a new approach to mobile pricing that lets customers buy minutes, messages, and data separately and allows households to pool them to an unlimited number of phones and data devices on one account. "Household data plans are the next step for consumers, mainly because people are adding more connected screens and devices to their lifestyle," writes Kevin Tofel. "And different household members have different data needs; some use a little while others consume gobs of gigabytes. Why not average out the usage across multiple devices?" Ting is a Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) that operates on Sprint's physical network and is available wherever Sprint provides coverage. Both AT&T and Verizon have hinted at offering shared data plans in the future but the devil’s in the details says Tofel. "My hope is that family data plans come soon, to all carriers, just like we have for family voice and messaging plans.""
