Looks like it’s about time to get back to my conspiracy theories. Many things have been said about the partnership between AT&T and Apple, from praise (well, not that much of it) to scathing criticisms regarding such decisions as the clawing back of Google Voice and other related apps. Well, this just in: Apple help “increase” user spending on data charges.
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.
This post has been updated with news from AT&T’s Facebook page in our post entitled: Tethering Plan Update: Not 55$, but Not Free.
