Verizon targets business users with new 100 GB shared data plans

Verizon Wireless (NYSE: VZ) announced new More Everything pricing for business users, allowing teams of up to 50 people to share up to 100 GB of data.

Verizon said the new plans also include mobile hotspot functions, 25 GB of cloud storage per device and access to corporate email, along with the standard unlimited talking and texting, including international messaging.

Specifically, Verizon said it will offer three new options: More Everything plans of 60 GB, 80 GB and 100 GB, which are intended for small- and medium-sized business users.

Verizon in February retired its Share Everything pricing and replaced it with its More Everything plans for consumers. The new offerings increase the data allotments for some plans, and also provide a discount to customers who use Verizon's "Edge" handset upgrade program.

Verizon isn't the only carrier to tweak pricing in an effort to gain new business customers. Most notably, T-Mobile US (NYSE:TMUS) in October unveiled its "Simple Global" international plans, which cut out international data roaming fees, though customers surf the web at slower speeds. T-Mobile recently said it now counts 2 million customers on its Simple Global plans.
