    Is the MiFi or 5-spot mobile their tethering option?

    $50 additional for 10gigs of tethering isn't a deal at all. I suppose they are targeting deep-pocketed businesses, but 5-10megs/s d/l isn't enough for me to ditch broadband by tethering. At $30 additional, I'd be indifferent.

    I realize tethering won't "cost" me anything, but it's not something I'm about to start abusing as a home broadband replacement. But seriously, $50/month for broadband is $600 a year - how 'bout we split that difference Big Red?

    I'm guessing that tiered pricing is a big part of the reason why AT&T signed 2.5 times the number of customers last month. The vast majority of people don't use a lot of data and saving $15 plus tax a month is a big deal to them. My wife is definitely one of them. I might also be able to downgrade to the $15 data plan, as I always use 3G, even when at a place with free wifi. If I would just start to use wifi then I would probably be under 150 MB a month. In any case, I could be as high as 300 MB before I get to $30 for the month. I have only gotten that high 1 of the 11 months that I have had my Droid and I was at a wifi hot spot for much of my usage and never took advantage of it.

    when does this take effect and question

    when does this take effect and did I read it right that we would no longer have to have the Data plans on our 3g feature phone just pay 1.99 if we happen to need it (I have my Droid but we also have 2 env3's that never are used for data)

    This hours into effect on the 28th. And as far as I can gather, multimedia phones will no longer have to have data packages.

    The Mifi/5Spot is not related to tethering, its a dedicated device that provides a wifi hotspot for up to 5 devices. (Mifi is US only, 5Spot is the new global version). In general, these are not meant to replace hard line internet but rather for people who are on the go and need reliable internet wherever they are.

    28th of this month? this is actually kind'a good. both my wife and the other line on my account is using less than 150M/mo. i'm way over that. at least that'll save me $30/mo for two lines if I modify those two lines to the $15 plan.

    I mean if I was any lower of a user, I wouldn't use the phone at all. I don't see how someone stays below 150mb, do you use the phone 10 min a day?

    Glad to see there is still unlimited. I could never stay under 150mb. If there was a 5gig plan, I'd take it. but nothing lower.

    If anything, it could be used for e-mail only and stay under 150mb a month easy. If a company were to remove the browser or something. Shoot, if I was to have wifi at my office, I'd barely use any 3G data. Most of mine is done where wifi is available.

    I pay $30 a month for my Blackberry data plan anyway so it won't be any different when I upgrade to a 3G phone soon.

    As long as they still have unlimited data, my phone's okay, I do burn a lot of it. My school uses a wifi security thing that doesn't work with Android, and their really stubborn about fixing it.

    My one concern is.... TABLETS. As multimedia devices, they burn a LOT of bandwidth. I'm very concerned about not having an unlimited data plan, especially since I intend to stream like Hulu Plus and stuff when I get one early next year. (Assuming Hulu does in fact churn out a Hulu Plus app for Android)

    How do you all keep your data usage so low? I use 5 gigs a month minimum.
