With AT&T Mobile Share, up to ten phones or other mobile devices (like tablets and laptops) will be able to share a single plan, making it a good option for small businesses, although larger enterprises are also eligible. AT&T Mobile Share customers will receive automatic alerts tracking their entire bucket's monthly data usage to avoid excess fees.

AT&T Mobile Share customers will receive automatic alerts to help them keep track of their entire bucket's monthly data usage, to avoid having to pay $15 per GB for data use that exceeds their plans' monthly cap. And if customers want to stay on their current plan they can do that as well, noted AT&T Mobility Chief Marketing Officer David Christopher.

Expanding The Bucket's Mix

Christopher also expects that AT&T will be adding other types of wireless devices to its new bucket plans in the future. "We'll see health care monitors, connected cars, security systems and other devices in the home all connected to the mobile Internet," Christopher said.

ABI Research projects that wireless home monitoring devices for seniors will quickly grow from less than 3 million unit shipments in 2011 to more than 36 million unit shipments in 2017. Over the five-year forecast period, the wireless home-monitoring segment will almost double its share of the wearable device health market to 22 percent -- up from 12 percent in 2011.

"Healthcare providers and care-givers alike are looking for devices to improve the monitoring of seniors in their own homes as economics and demographics increasingly drive that demand," said Jonathan Collins, a principal analyst at ABI Research.
