AT&T: iPhone Tethering Rumors are False

By  |  Friday, June 19, 2009 at 1:33 pm

The latest rumor du jour regarding AT&T’s tethering support says that it could cost as much as $55 per month on top of an unlimited data plan for the functionality. This has sparked even more criticism against the already battered carrier, something it is not going to allow to happen.

From the company’s official Facebook page: “There are a lot of reports out there, but wanted you guys to know that rumors of $55 tethering plan on top of an unlimited data plan are false. We’ll have more news to share when the iPhone tethering option is closer to launch.”

It is not exactly clear what AT&T will charge, but apparently it’s not going to be $55. Probably far less (let’s hope free, like some other carriers).

    I bet it’s a $5, $10, or $15 add on like the unlimited texting option. They’re probably trying to gauge where the sweet-spot is on the pricing though. Not everyone will use it even if it’s free, so the people who want it will probably have to pay for it… but if it’s cheap enough even more people will buy it just to use once in a while… Realistically speaking I bet it could even go up to $20/month.

    As I see it, tethering should be free in your unlimited data-plan. You pay for data, no matter how you use it.
