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).
