AT&T’s iPhone 4G to feature tethering at launch; AT&T intros cheaper (non-unlimited) data plans
So AT&T has announced new wireless data plans called DataPlus and DataPro – they’re effective starting June 7 and will cost $15 and $25, respectively. DataPlus gives you 200MB per month, while DataPro gives you 2GB per month.
These plans will enable more customers to access mobile Internet, but at the same time they don’t offer any unlimited data option, like the current $30 per month plan does.
With the new AT&T data plans comes a new tethering option: smartphone owners who choose the DataPro plan can add tethering for $20 per month – and the great news here is that AT&T will finally enable tethering for iPhone, as soon as Apple unleashes iPhone 4 OS. And yes, this means the iPhone 4G (or whatever it’s called in the end) will have tethering at launch (launch expected to happen later this month).
