I believe at point they were charging if you hooked a router up....or at the very least it was in the works to do so. In the name of almighty greed I would not put anything past any business to go to any measure to suck out more from any single person, without batting an eye or twitching in the least bit. How do you argue against something with no conscious...crash1781 said:This is how I look at it. Carriers should not be able to charge you for tethering. You already pay for the mobile data, so why should you have to pay for it twice? Do you think that the FCC or consumers for that matter would let Home Broadband companies charge you to hook a router up to your home network? In my eyes if i am paying for a service I should be able to use it however, whenever, and on whatever device that i see fit to do so.
