hmm strange my wifi tether works see below:



followed directions and connected to my desktop



speed test equates to 2.75 MB/s



I am located in Washington DC. The plan i use is:

Mobile Share Value Plan 2GB $40.00
Mobile Share Value Smartphone 4G LTE w/ VVM $40.00
Discount for Mobile Share Value Savings−$15.00
International Roaming - Expanded $0.00
Total Monthly Plan Charges $65.00

Just myself on the plan, i used to pay almost $90 for the old 3GB, 450 min talk, unlimited text, plan from long ago but i was just looking around and found this new plan (new to me at least) which suits me well. I don't know why i got the -$15 discount but it brings it down to $65, and i got the S5 monthly phone payment plan for $25/month. essentially paying the same i've always been with AT&T.

i am not sure if this new plan i am using allows wifi tethering but it works for me. I have disabled every AT&T service/app from my phone as well. Just sharing my experience.

Can anyone else confirm that it's most likely that Mobile Share Value Plans allow tethering/wi-fi hotspot from the S5?

Is there a tethering option or app that works on the S5 without the provision enabled (I have an old grandfathered data plan)?

Any Mobile Share plan of any size allows for WiFi hotspot with no additional charge.

All current mobile share plans include hotspot at no additional charge. However that is a useless thing since LTE would. Eat up the limited data very quickly.
