Question to anyone on Three mobile - Are you able to tether without paying the extra per month?

It used to be that you could (regardless of if you paid the extra £5) it's just you couldn't go mad and torrent etc. Have they blocked tethering now?

I'm on the £12.90 rolling contract with all you can eat data, but it doesn't seem to be working for me. It connects to my iPhone as a wireless network on the Macbook, but pages don't load.

Three has been "blocking" tethering on some plans for quite a while now.

Usually you get redirected to a web page telling you that tethering isn't allowed on your plan.
