The company has a firm hold on what type of plan it will offer and intends to offer one soon, said Ralph de la Vega, CEO of AT&T's mobile business, in an interview with CNET here yesterday. A family data plan would allow consumers to buy one bucket of data, which can be used by multiple devices, a move industry observers believe could spur the sale of non-traditional cellular devices like connected tablets.
"I'm very comfortable with the plan that will be offered to our customers," de la Vega said at the CTIA Wireless trade show.
De la Vega knows how the plan will be structured but refused to provide any specific details on timing.
Verizon is also expected to offer a shared data plan sometime this year.
