[Poll] Your Phone’s Portable WiFi HotSpot & Tethering Feature: Pay The Carrier to Unlock the Feature, or Use a Rooted/Custom ROM?

Posted Dec 20, 2012 at 9:27 am in Threads > Opinions

When I pay for a data plan that has a limit, I really don’t think the carriers should be allowed to decide how I use the data i.e. no tethering for certain plans.

What is your opinion for data plans that have limits (whether throttling or hard)?

A – you would pay the carrier for the privilege of tethering in their branded ROM.
B – you would use a rooted or custom ROM to allow tethering without any additional cost.
C – you don’t really use tethering.
