Tesco Mobile stopping personal hotspot feature of iOS 4.3

The latest software update from Apple has only been available for a couple of days, after the company released it ahead of schedule. One of the new features of iOS 4.3 is the personal hotspot feature for the iPhone. But not everyone is able to use the service.

Gareth Beavis over at TechRadar is reporting that Tesco Mobile users with an iPhone 4 have been complaining the new feature was not on their device, despite updating to iOS 4.3. The feature will allow users to send their data allowance to another device via Wi-Fi.

Tesco Mobile have since confirmed it doesn’t currently support tethering or the portable Wi-Fi hotspot feature. A spokesperson did confirm they will introduce it sometime soon for its customers, but didn’t mention if it would cost any extra. The company offers the iPhone 4 on short twelve month contracts, but for those customers not having this feature must be really frustrating.
