O2 in the UK have done it again and shocks us all with a first in the UK by scrapping the charge for tethering, aka using your phone to access internet on your laptop/PC.

Up until now, you had to pay a monthly charge on top of your line-rental if you were an iPhone user and officially I don’t think there was any option for non-iPhone customer’s, they just were not allowed to. I actually remember stories of people who had used it a lot and got warnings that they would get cut off!

One of the reason’s I am assuming they are doing this is because these day’s all tariff’s now come with the set limit to how much data you are allowed to download, so, if you go over it you will pay per MB unless you have agreed to pay for an additional “bolt-on” with more data allowance.
