AT&T to Charge $10/month for iPhone Tethering?

AT&T to Charge $10/month for iPhone Tethering?

Recent information indicates that AT&T may offer their iPhone tethering plan for $10 per month, according to MacBlogz.

Their sources said that a launch date has not been set for the iPhone Tethering plan; however, people are buzzing about it all over AT&T, so it may be sooner rather than later.

The biggest piece of information we learned was that AT&T is playing around with a $10 price-point. This made my eyes light up and I asked them how they could get away with charging a third of what was initially reported, here's the response I got. "iPhone tethering is primarily an AT&T offering, but it involves Apple at least wanting or allowing the service, which they do. If it doesn't function as expected, I know of a few people who may lose their jobs," my colleague explained. "While you may think it's as easy as streamlining our Blackberry tethering service over to the iPhone, it's not. Connection may be tied into iTunes, and Apple is incredibly controlling when it comes to this space."

It's safe to say that a $10 tethering plan would see a far higher adoption rate than the $30 dollar plan previously rumored.
