Tether is back!

For those of you who don’t remember it’s previous 20 hour debut in the appstore, I forgive you! It was clearly only out for a hot minute. The claim was that the software burdened the data networks But now it’s back.  So for 15 dollars a year your can use iPhone or iPad to provide internet access for your laptop. You need to have a data plan on your iPad to use this feature. Who needs this app? Anyone who has ever traveled with his or her laptop and paid 10 bucks for 30 minutes of internet access! Tether is an application you can install from their website.It is also much cheaper to tether from your phone than paying 30 bucks a month for the mobile hotspot feature now offered for iPhones.

There is a downside, It is device specific. You can tether your one computer to your phone, not multiple devices.

  1. Question: how is this different from using a wireless card? I’m just starting to look into getting a wireless card, is Tether something that makes more sense? Thanks.

    • I would try tether first. It is mor cost effective. It uses your existing plan do you are not paying monthly for something you use infrequently. You pay 15 dollars for the whole year with tether instead of 60 bucks a month on a wireless card. I have a unlimited data plan for my iPhone so it is really a good deal for me.
