Thethering, yes or no?

On the 4G tariffs, is tethering allowed? I was told yes by VM CS...

Re: Thethering, yes or no?

Hi a_ukboy,

 

in the T's & C's at the bottom of the Main Page it clearly states:

"Tethering and peer to peer file sharing prohibited."

Re: Thethering, yes or no?

Well yes it does state in the T&C that tethering isn't allowed, but also in the T&C there's a fair use policy of 3.5GB, but that doesn't apply to the new 4G tariffs..
Why I'm questioning it is because firstly I've been told yes by customer services, but also surely if it was a no, why isn't the feature disabled? My other phone is on 3, on a tariff that doesn't allow tethering, and it's impossible to do it as you can't physically switch thethering on!

Interesting that I had a 3 PAYG and although tethering was not allowed I could still switch it on. Phone was a Samsung S5

Re: Thethering, yes or no?

With my Motorola G4 using the standard Virgin APN settings = tethering is blocked, I can hotspot and connect to it OK with another device, but internet does not work.

A little play with the Virgin APN, then all will work fine afterwards :-)
