No I'm being serious... There is a HUGE difference in how data is transferred between a mobile network and a landline ip... Mobile networks were NEVER meant to handle the size of data packets that get transfered when tethering as a host on ps3... Do some research because in this instance, data is not data. People that use mobile networks for hosting ps3 and xbox, although xbox does it quite differently, are the very reason why sprint's unlimited data could disappear soon. Sprint can easily tell when you have been tethering more or less hosting. I dunno about you but I personally cant afford 5 lines on VZW or ATT with capped data, and I have terrible T-Mobile coverage in my area. It's not the little amount of tether usage majority of us use, it's the huge amounts of data that are transferred when someone is using their phone as a host, i.e. running ps3/xbox, torrents, etc... And yes, 3G in my area sucks too, but that makes it right for someone to clog up what little bit of network that is there? Like I said unlimited could be ripped away from us, unless people start showing a little respect to the t.o.s. agreements WE ALL signed...
