Android 2.2 Froyo: Nexus One and Motorola Droid Free Tethering?

One of the best things about Google’s new Android 2.2 Froyo operating system, is that it comes with support for tethering and wireless hotspot abilities. We have a report for you to read now, which hints that free tethering may be available for some handsets.

As reported from Phandroid, we have now learned that the support of tethering within Android 2.2 handsets will be down to the carrier. They will be in charge in terms of fees, although Phandroid states that the Nexus One and Motorola Droid could get free tethering support since they are directly tied to Google Experience.

A particularly worrying fact for consumers though, is that carriers have the ability to disable tethering on 2.2 if they so wish to do so.

While tethering is obviously a great addition, you should expect it to come at high costs per month. Let us know your thoughts on this.
