Re: Tethering

1. Yes Telstra supports tethering but it depends on your handset capabilities.

2. Data usage may increase.

Re: Tethering

Thank you for your reply.

 

My phone supports Tethering and I am on a 8gig plan data plan with my mobile.

 

Should be enough to cover my tethering each month.

 

What are your thoughts.

Re: Tethering

I only have 2.5GB and I tether my surface tablet on it all day and I use it a fair bit. I never have any troubles. I do not download big files on the mobile, I wait until I get home on WIFI.

 

Depends on your habits (streaming music or videos will chew through your data)
