Adding tether to my monthly plan is $5 a month. Not a huge deal, but thats 60 a year.

Also, some prepaids offer unlimited data but NO hotspot on those plans.

What are people doing to enable hotspot / tether anymore??

The $5 is no big issue, I just don't want to be throttled. Currently I'm on a Pixel XL running 11 and using the Magisk tetheringenabler with no issues. Hoping my new 6 Pro can accomplish the same.

The heavier users need more than your 15 or whatever gb is given for free or paid ... After that, the speed is throttle... We need unlimited speed and gb

I'm coming from an unlimited Sprint plan. You think I'll still get throttled? 🤔
I'm not sure if any carriers' "unlimited" is truly unlimited at the fastest speed - more often it's unlimited data, but after some specified amount (such as 15, 20, or 22 GB) of mobile data usage, they'll limit you to 3G or even 2G speeds, depending on the carrier.

VPN, regular VPN? The best ad blocker I seen is ad guard, but I use VPN. It even blocks ads in games.

Let's try that one. Vpn hotspot is a mess. Pdanet+ with USB is the best as of now, but Im tired of connecting the phone. Lucky patcher needed for this one

Yes, I use SurfShark + VPN tether, works perfectly fine for Cricket. More than 40Gigs of tethering data monthly
