Appmodo says a source tells it that rumors of a high price on AT&T’s forthcoming iPhone tethering plans are true.
The controversy over tethering pricing remains the same. Tethering for iPhone will cost $55 on top of the current iPhone data plans.
MMS will be included with the current text messaging plans.
There you have it folks.
If it pans out, hats off to Appmodo. But AT&T specifically denies this: “rumors of $55 tethering plan on top of an unlimited data plan are false.”
I know what you’re thinking: that AT&T might be stupid enough to do it, but not stupid enough to lie about it.
Update: AT&T re-issues its denial: “an AT&T spokesman said the company will charge for a tethering plan but still has not determined how much it will cost or when it will become available.” [Gadget Lab]
