iPhone to Get 3G Tethering

Apple and AT&T are working on a plan to tether the iPhone to your computer. All that means is the already stretched and overloaded AT&T 3G network will feel the strain, but at the same time be the route to doubling or even tripling capacity.

I've tethered my Nokia E71 and N95 using Joikuspot on AT&T's network with amazing results. Given Apples approach to simplicity this lifeline to the Internet will likely connect more people than ever before.

In the UK this would be an expensive way to connect. To illustrate a typical business bolt on data tariff costs £7.50 for 200MB. A separate datacard tariff on the other hand might get you 5GB for £25.

This is of course the networks' disincentive to use voip on a mobile over 3G but it hits the laptop user that decides not to get a separate datacard.
