If you have been patiently waiting for AT&T to officially enable iPhone tethering then we have some news for you.
MacDailyNews readers got this response from AT&T when they enquired about iPhone tethering:
“Tethering the iPhone is a priority for us and we are working hard to make it available as soon as possible. As you might imagine, we want to make sure that we deliver a quality customer experience from the start. We don’t have details yet but will be sure to make a news announcement when tethering becomes available.”
It's high time that AT&T enables tethering for its iPhone customers as it has been almost 9 months since the feature was introduced in iPhone OS 3.0. Users who have jailbroken their iPhone have already been able to enable tethering using simple hacks.
A recent 3G Performance Test conducted by PC World across 13 cities in the US showed that AT&T's claims of building additional 3G capacity was not merely a lip-service and is actually showing results. The PC World study had ranked AT&T as the top performing 3G network in US. So we're quite hopeful that AT&T will deliver on its promise.
