WWDC 2010 is just around the corner and we know that Steve Jobs will offer more details on the new iPhone OS 4.0 along with its release date. To coincide with this and the launch of a new iPhone, AT&T is to finally launch Internet Tethering for the iPhone and iPad.
This will come into place once AT&T launch its new DataPro plan, with the $20 per month that you pay for this add-on the total price for the new plan will be $45. For that you will get 2GB of data usage per month, this has to be shared with your phone and the device that you tether to.
However, Chris Ziegler from Engadget has been looking more closely into the press release sent out by AT&T, and things can start to get expensive for those who will use tethering more on their laptops. You will have to part with $75 per month for a 5GB data limit.
This option will be available on all handsets on AT&T, but it is iPhone users who have wanted the option the most. Maybe they have been forced to do it since Steve Jobs has started to offer hints that the new iPhone will be coming to another carrier in 2010, which you can read more about in our recent post.
