And to the person Above, I USE A LOT OF DATA! Only PC`s. I ONLY tether really if I`m traveling which is rare been been a couple 1000 miles this month. But usually I only tether at one Location and I`m there 3 days a week cause the other Option is using there Satilite internet and THATS not happening lol, so I have 2 computers and a phone usually connected to my tether and the speeds are only about 3-4 megs on HSPA+ service is horrible no LTE in my area. But when I`m at home I hardly use Tether unless my internet goes out as I have a 25meg connection at home.

Also a LOT of the data this month is from YouTube, Within an hour in the car it used about 2GB in JUST Youtube Videos from my Friend using to for music hooked to my radio.

Ok got ya, yeah that can boost up the data usage.

But, he did confirm that he does tether once in a while. I had just begun to mainly because our brilliant IT guy at work locked up wifi for a few weeks after getting rid of the WAP that would randomly go out, forcing us to find other means to get on the internet with our non-smartphone devices. Now that wifi isn't locked anymore, I find no real reason to tether unless it's an emergency.

+1 on the emergency tethering!

Oh I know you hit the 150 gig. I remember you posting that awhile back. I tether every now and then. Because everywhere I go there's WiFi. But when I'm on the road I'll use it. But don't think I ever got that hi b4! lol
