AT&T Will Allow iPhone Tethering ‘Soon’

Although nothing is mentioned in terms of price and the timing is mentioned as merely ““soon”, AT&T will officially sanction tethering for the iPhone, according to AT& Mobility CEO Ralph De La Vega in an interview TechCrunch’s Mike Arrington. Those who jail break their iPhones can already do this, and word is AT&T has been skeptical about allowing this on their more fragile than we had been led to believe 3G network.

Interesting as this comes on the heels of news that AT&T has finally opened up the promised free WiFi for iPhone users at Starbucks and more recent news that it will be acquiring WayPort to increase the amount of WiFi hotspots it can offer.
