Default Tethering?

Did Tmo change their tethering policy? I used to be a Tmo employee about 2 years ago and at the time if you had unlimited 4g you got 200mb of tethering data. When you reached that 200 MB you were redirected to a Tmo page offering plan changes for higher data use. If you had a finite data plan like 5 or 10 GB you could tether all you want until you reached that limit.

Well, I've used about 4 GB of tethering data in the last 3 days (haven't tether in over a year and a half) and I haven't been redirected to a Tmo plan change page like I used to.

Anyone?

I've tethered over 50 gigs without any Tmo issues.

Depends if you are on stock or not, and I guess OP as well but I assumed he was stock. AFAIK, T-Mobile does limit unlimited user's tethering.. Of course there are workarounds
