As much as I hate to derail my own thread, I have to. This time from their very own Facebook page, AT&T debunk the rumour that they would charge 55$ per month for tethering. They do not shed light on any pricing model, if applicable, but remain adamant that they have been misunderstood by the various press around the world and that rumours are false. While that is good news to AT&T customers, there is no proof that they company will not charge something for the service.
This will be as short as my opinion of the Telecom Giant, AT&T. I am not American, nor do live in the country, but I met an American once and I feel sorry for the dude. He surely now has an iPhone and a laptop and may sometime just wants to use part of his 5GB ‘unlimited’ internet rather than fiddling with the dinky ‘real internet’ on the toned-down iPhone Safari. So what are his options? Well, AT&T in their infinite wisdom and abundance of PR skills have affected a new policy that tethering will be a surcharge of 55$ per month.
