Verizon's 18GB shared data plan costs $100

If Verizon's previous 12GB bucket of shared data wasn't big enough for your needs the company's got a new tier to (hopefully) help you out. Big Red's now offering 18GB for $100 a month and calling this new tier XXL, as Android Central points out. Of course, you'll have to shell out $20 per connected line, but what's a touch unexpected is that this promotion is only available for a limited time. This naturally still includes unlimited talk and text and if it proves popular, it probably wouldn't be a stretch to imagine the carrier keeping the new tier around.
