Did you get charged extra for data used during tethering? I've been curious to try, but didn't want to end up paying a bundle in data usage.I've tethered my phone as a test before and it's quite good, despite the low signal where I am right now.
I had like 1 bar and could still get 1.5mbps (D)/500kbps(U)
I'm about 1.5km from the nearest tower.
At work or the dr's office, both of which are directly across the street from antennae, I've ran speedtests on my phone and gotten 3-4mbps/600kbps.
Note that you'll never see 7.2mbps.
That's the theoretical max in a perfect world with zero interference
Really?Telus also allows tethering on their data plans. I am on the 500mb plan, and I am allowed tethering on my iPhone.
Which Cradlepoint router are you using?I use a Wind internet stick with a Craddlepoint 3G router and directly in my laptop. So far, everywhere I've been that they say has coverage does. Data speed varies with location. Most of the time download tests 6-6.5 Mb/s and upload almost always .35 Mb/s but speed depends on location and network traffic. Internet stick normally sells for $100 but has been on sale for $80.
