Re: Tethering?

At the bottom of their mobile page under general mobile terms, it says, "Tethering and peer to peer file sharing prohibited".

But I'm sure they won't throw the book at you for the odd occasion :-)

Re: Tethering?

Thanks, thought so. Seems a bit daft when the data is yours as you are paying for it but can't use it how you like !!

Wanted to use it to tether to a laptop at our static.

Re: Tethering?

As Teabag has intimated...

Although its excluded in the TOS, tethering will likely go under the radar as long as the usage profile looks like what a mobile would. So if your just surfing and streaming the odd YouTube video, its unlikely you will encounter any issues.

If you decide to tether a PC and download and play games on Steam, theyll come down on you fairly quickly.
