AT&T Cracking Down on Tethering

No More Freebies

Everyone’s favorite wireless service provider, AT&T, has started sending out notices to users they believe are tethering their phones without paying.

According to an AT&T representitive:

“We are sending emails, letter and┬átext┬ámessages to a small number of smartphone customers who use their devices for tethering but aren’t on the required tethering plan.

ArsTechnica is reporting that users have until March 27 to respond to AT&T and either stop tethering, pay for tethering, or risk AT&T bumping them up to another plan. No one really seems sure how AT&T knows/guesses who is tethering, but the intelligent man can deduce such things from looking at how much data a user is going through.
