David Thodey recently commented on this site about iPhone tethering and we promised to let you know when it was active.
I am pleased to let you know that as of Saturday 5 December, tethering on Apple iPhone™ became available for Telstra customers. Telstra Next G™ network customers can now use their compatible Apple iPhone as a modem. Customers can activate tethering through an update to their settings which is available through iTunes. There is no charge for activating this feature however ongoing usage rates apply if you use this service.
Data used when tethering is charged at either a ‘Pay as you go’ rate or as part of a Browsing Pack. To assist in managing costs Telstra recommends that customers who plan to use this feature add a browsing pack which provides a set amount of data each month for a monthly fee. If customers use more than their pack amount per month, they will pay for the extra browsing at a reduced rate.
The Telstra website has more information about the ‘pay as you go’ rate or browsing packs.
