I wanted to compare the shared data plans for Verizon and AT&T and see which was a better deal. Due to how they charge it really only matters how many smart phones you choose on AT&T as that is the main price differentiation. Everything else is just a flat fee so this is how I compared them. Amazingly, they are very similar but depending on how much data / how many smart phones you have on the plan the prices can vary on who is cheaper. I had assumed that AT&T would always be cheaper but I was wrong. The attached file with the key at the bottom is read this way, blue = same price, green = lower price, red = higher price, and yellow = attention. If something isn't highlighted then there is no direct comparison. Basically, pick how many smart phones you have, how much data you want and compare. Then add tablets / hotspots / dumb phones / etc as they wont cause any fluctuations between the carriers. Anyway, if anyone is interested, here you go. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1A8ZnfcCz96BRcsyLjYS1sOIc5aPWFWcbMAqdAUqi2N4/edit Quick Summary: 2 smartphones or 4GB is equal between the 2 carries. 1 Smart phone or 1GB data is cheaper on Verizon. 3 or more smartphones and 6GB or more data is cheaper on AT&T.
