Hemera/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — The nation’s two largest carriers are shaking up their data plans to help keep up in a world where more people and their families now own multiple smartphones and tablets.

On the heels of Verizon’s announcement in late June of its “Share Everything” data plans, which lets customers share a bucket of data across phones and tablets, AT&T has announced today its very own “Mobile Share” plans.

The new offerings, which will be available in late August, will let new and existing AT&T customers buy a single “bucket” of 3G or 4G data, which they can use for web surfing, email, apps, etc., on any device included. The plans will also include unlimited voice minutes and text messages. Before this, customers had to buy specific data plans for each device.
