About a week or so ago, AT&T announced that they would be forcing customers who use unofficial apps and hacks for unsanctioned tethering to pay more. They further have begun threatening to cancel grandfathered unlimited data plans on the AT&T network if users didn't stop using "illegal" tethering. It appears that Verizon is following AT&T's example and will soon be employing some of the same tactics.
We have actually already started seeing this from Verizon previously. If they catch users using unsanctioned tethering they redirect them from whatever page they are trying to visit to a Verizon page that offers official tethering for $20 more monthly. From what reports indicate, they are now going to be making this "more official", and may consider further actions. The only bright side is that Verizon's unlimited official tethering is considerably cheaper than the $45 dollar monthly charge on AT&T.
It's probably not surprising, but what do you guys think of this development?
