  • Go to section

Tethering is included in your plan as part of your data allowance.

When you tether a laptop or tablet to your phone, the online data it uses comes out of your data allowance.

If you go over your plan's allowance, we'll charge you for data at the standard rate.

Making calls while you're tethering

If you're using the 3G or 4G network, you can make calls on your mobile phone and use tethering at the same time.

If you're using the 2G network, your tethering session will be stopped when you make a phone call.
