Optus iPhone 3G S pricing plan reveals tethering charge

Data allowance excludes tethered data

Details of Optus’ pricing plans for the upcoming release of the iPhone 3G S are available, and it has been revealed on forum Web site Whirlpool that the telco is to charge for iPhone tethering.

Last week, an Optus spokesperson confirmed the carrier will allow its subscribers to use the iPhone's tethering application, now however, included iPhone data allowance will not be able to be used for data tethering.

The third-generation of Apple’s iPhone allows “tethering” - where the phone can be used as a 3G mobile broadband modem.

Now Optus customers will face extra-charges, $15 for 500mb according to Gizmodo, to use this function.
