AT&T iPhone Tethering Not Coming This Year
Earlier this year AT&T was touting that iPhone tethering would become available “sometime this year”, but plans have changed since then and the wireless giant is issuing new statements regarding the hot request.
When asked recently during a press conference, an AT&T spokesman said that the tethering option is still unavailable to customers, “Whenever we offer new features, we want to offer the best possible customer experience. For tethering, we need to do some additional fine tuning to our systems and networks so that we do deliver a great experience”. The wait comes as AT&T struggles to upgrade their existing networks to properly support MMS for the iPhone.
