We are paying LESS, not more.
I looked at our usage for the past year, and switched to a 6G/month shared plan. My wife was still on the old "unlimited" plan, and I was on a 4GB/month plan with tethering.
Our bill actually went down about $20/month, and we got tethering for both phones. I could lower it further by dropping to 4G/month, as our typical usage is below that.

Verizon lets you backdate plan increases to the beginning of your current billing cycle. I'd drop it to 4GB and make a phone call if you wind up going over in a particular month.
There is no reason to pay an overage on any Verizon plan, voice or data, if you are proactive enough to monitor your usage. They've allowed this type of backdating for more than a decade.
