I tether once in a while. It's not a regular thing for me, but here and there I need it. Verizon tech originally told me to use PDANet but now paid tethering is available so I thought well maybe I should just pay for the service. I look at the plan and it's 20.00 for 2Gigs. I'm thinking 10.00 for a Gig, are they on crack? So I did a little testing and here is what I found: One day: Watched one, one hour netflix television show Two hours of XM radio Update to PC email all day surfing six hours, a couple of random video clips Day Two Repeat above This worked out to 880Mb or so. So basically at this level of use which I would consider a couple of medium days for me I would burn up 2 Gigs in about 5 days. I would jump on a 10Gig plan which after testing I think is reasonable. As it stands now I'll just leave things as I have them. I thought the 5Gig plan was a little thin but these 2gig and 2.5gigs plans are a joke. I'm not going to spend my hard earned money for that kind of bandwidth when traveling, I'll just buzz my rear down to Mickey Ds or whoever has free wireless where I'm at if I really need the net for a large download or whatever. IMO they are getting $50.00 (30 + 20) it really should be unlimited. Don't you get your home service for around 50.00 and it's unlimited? Fortunately a lot more hotels are offering free wireless these days so this is becoming less of an issue.
