    Sprint Drops Tethering From All-You-Can-Eat 4G Buffet

    Sprint's big battle cry entering into the iPhone 4S era is, "We have true unlimited data; the other guys don't!" That's a definite advantage in the
    smartphone
    wars, but can Sprint sustain an unlimited business model with all the new traffic Apple's iPhone will bring to its network? That's a good question and one that's made even more interesting to speculate after Sprint just announced changes to its mobile broadband plan and
    mobilehotspot
    add-on.

    "If you have a mobile broadband device such as a tablet, netbook, notebook, USB card, connection card or Mobile Hotspot device, effective beginning with your next bill following notification, your on-network monthly data allowance will no longer include unlimited 4G," Sprint said in a statement.

    Starting in November, Sprint will begin outfitting its subscribers with 3GB, 5GB, and 10GB data caps for tethered data, as outlined above. You're still free to go hog wild on your smartphone and watch as much Netflix as you want, you just can't tether your notebook or other device to it and go beyond hard data caps without incurring a penalty.

    I guess this was bound to happen, Sprint is that much less attractive.

    Sooner or later all carriers' grasp of unlimited data gets distorted. When it happens it results in asterisks next to use of the words unlimited and data in the same sentence and restrictions imposed.

    ^ What he said. Same as Cingular/AT&T a few years ago offering unlimited texting which was actually capped, then not understanding why people were flipping out when they were getting charged overages @ a per text basis.
    What is best in life? "To crush your enemies, to see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their women."

    Verizon did the same thing. I had unlimited but when I went over 2000 they told me I needed to have family unlimited. Keep in mind I was the only one who texted.

    True. "What's that you say, we illegally foreclosed on your home? Poppycock!"
    What is best in life? "To crush your enemies, to see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their women."
