AT&T readying its internal systems for the arrival of shared data plansAlex Wagner - Deputy Managing Editor, News Desk
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?
