I'm not sure if anyone is using the tethering package from Sprint, but I found out some info about it: In my opinion, it's overpriced compared to competitors, but here is what I discovered after some brief chatting with customer service... 1. It's $30 per month for 5 GB of TETHERED data. Your phone data is still unlimited, and they have the ability to distinguish between the two through some way the packets of data are sent. 2. The plan is PRORATED, so if you're going on Vacation for a week, and you're not sure you'll have Wifi access, you can activate your hotspot, and deactivate it a week later. A typical billing cycle is I believe 30 days, so 7/30 is 23.34% of the month. You'll end up paying 23.34% of $30, or $7.00 for your week of tethered data. This could be must cheaper than using a Hotel or Airport wifi. 3. They are considering but not close to deploying a smaller plan, such as $15/month for 1 GB of tethered data. If customers demand a feature like this, it's more probably they could deploy something like this. This is ESPECIALLY important because it appears that Sprint will be left off the iPad 3 3G/4GLTE carriers because of it's slow deployment of 4G. This could be huge in getting revenue compared to competitors. So, anyone actually use the Sprint tethering? I know Sprint speeds tend to be on the slower side, but is it similar to the speeds I'm seeing on my phone now? I'm considering an iPad 3, and I'd prefer a Wifi model and hotspot as needed. Thanks!
