A leaked internal memo from T-Mobile had revealed last week about the imminent launch of an unlimited tethering plan for T-Mobile subscribers. That rumor has turned out to be true as the carrier has now announced this offer at a monthly cost of $14.99. If you didn’t know already, tethering lets you to connect your mobile phone to any other internet capable device like a computer or laptop to surf the web on these devices using the mobile phone’s wireless network.
The tethering plan is however not available to all users. The T-Mobile media statement notes that only subscribers of the $30 a month “Web – Unlimited” plan can avail this offering by paying the additional $14.99 fee. The tethering does not require the user to connect their device to the computer with cables and instead is done wirelessly. In other words, the tethering plan will let users set up their mobile phones as Wi-Fi hotspots.
