Back in November Dieter told us about the Evil Empires (AT&T) plan to drain another $30 from all of it's iPhone owners if they wanted to tether with a laptop. Well according to TUAW this may be the week you have all been waiting for.


blockquote>It's been under the rumor banner for some time now, but we've been told by a trusted source that the long-awaited AT&T iPhone-as-modem tethering plans (preliminary details in MacBlogz' post from November: 5 GB data cap, $30/month supplementary cost) may be ready for prime time during Macworld Expo this week. The tethering announcement might not rise to a keynote-worthy level; it could simply be publicized as a press release during the show.

So what will you get for your $30 a month??? 5 GB data cap... A bit steep don't you think? Then again would you expect anything else from AT&T? I know the few times I would actually be tethering, I'd willing to take that risk on the Jailbroken app. Are you willing to pay that much for this service or are you more willing to Jailbreak your iPhone 3G and roll the dice with a program such as PdaNet?
