AT&T shared data plans Telegence

AT&T CEO Ralph de la Vega has made it well-known that his carrier intends to launch shared data plans, but so far that's all that we've really heard on the matter. That changes today, as a pair of images sent to Engadget show that AT&T has made some changes to Telegence, its internal customer account management system, to prepare for the arrival of shared data offerings. The shot up above notes that a data note has been added to the voice node in Telegence's group level services window. Unfortunately for us, there's no real information about AT&T's shared data plans to be found in the leaked images.

Considering how long Ralph de la Vega has been talking up AT&T's plans to offer shared data, it's good to see that the carrier is one step closer to actually making those plans available to customers. Of course, when that'll happen is still a mystery, as the above image points out that the launch date for shared data is still to be determined. Here's to hoping that we actually are getting close to seeing AT&T introduce its shared data plans to the public. How many of you would be interested in signing up for a shared data plan? What kinds of data allotments and pricing would you like to see in shared data offerings?

Frank Porter
Frank Porter Haha what data alotments would you like it asks? I'll take unlimited please and thank you. What a dumb question
Susan Phillips
Susan Phillips I had at&t for a couple of months, using an Atrix 2, the 4g was great, but the $10.00 gigabyte for heavy data users wasn't going to work for me. I understand that heavy data users are in the minority, welcome to Boost with an unlocked HTC Evo.
Joshua Ko
Joshua Ko YES YES YES! That would be so nice!

Daniel Quintero That's why the att and T-Mobile merger was not allowed
Shahid Khan
Shahid Khan USA needs more competition to drive down prices.... Like in Uk. In uk we have the big cariers like Vodafone, Orange, Tmobile, O2 & 3-Network. They are supplemented by smaller, but very aggressive competitors like Virgin mobile, Tesco, Talk-mobile, etc, etc. I must admit the deals are very compared with the prices being quoted on here with USA cariers
Shahid Khan
Shahid Khan its going 2 be very expensive like most USA cariers due to lack of competition. In the UK, we have numerous Cariers, resulting in lower prices & more data, calls, etc! I would advise Tmobile customers to Not leave them, its a very good provider, it especially has fantastic customer retention deals when you threaten to leave..... Im paying £5 per month with unlimited data & htc wildfire S!

Carol Dudley-Bowen How much you want to bet there won't be much of a savings with them?
Brandon Lowery
Brandon Lowery on the family plan now they charge each person a data charge. with this you could share the data. 3gb is plenty for me and my wife. Would really like this if they did it. Would save us 30 a month and our bill would go down from 160 to 130. If they didn't raise the price for doing this
Chuck Rico Taylor
Chuck Rico Taylor Wow 1 hour and only ten likes that really tells you somethin lol
Brian Dingle
Brian Dingle fucking stupid..are you trying to get worse company of the year..shessh why the fuck would you do that can you imagine a family plan with a kid and the mom guess whos gonna use the most data un fucking believable
Jamie Doege
Jamie Doege 6gb data plan here, zero throttling :P <3 Canada
Michael Miller
Michael Miller AT&T, lol.
Benjamin Padilla
Benjamin Padilla I say carriers should have a flat rate of $5 per 500mb. If you use 3gb that would be $30. If you use 1.5 gb. That's $15. I like my plan though. Unlimited data on Sprint. I never go over our pay more.
Benjamin Padilla
Benjamin Padilla The concept is good. Only problem is you know ATT and Verizon are going to charge more than you're paying now.

David Smith there service is so sketchy, i got tmobile perfect, my girl has att dropped calls and data drops all the time... they need more spectrum bad... i couldnt deal with it.. were about to pay hundreds just to get away from it..
Ethan Shrago
Ethan Shrago That's cool. Mean while, i just got an Epic 4G Touch on Sprint with unlimited data. 30 bucks with the shared data feature. But at least they're getting the point.
Brandon Cote
Brandon Cote T-Mobile> AT&T
