Samsung Galaxy S2 + Three The One Plan + Tethering


[link to this post]
 
Hi i just ordered a Samsung Galaxy S2 with three on The One Plan ive done a bit of googleing but get mixed answers can anyone on here with the one plan confirm if tethering is aloud.
I want to tether to 2 netbooks (me / a friend) when were out in town Obviously away from home wifi there is free wifi in our town but its very patchy in some areas and TBH with the amount of phones and stuff on it its like dialup when it dose work were as three get very good speeds.

Also if its possible do they ever complain if you use a lot of data (youtube FB games etc it all adds up)

Thanks Ash

Yep it works fine, I shifted over 31GB one month.
I average around 6GB per month.

I regularly used to tether my IPAD and PC on a Iphone4. I managed 110GB one month. Three told me that as long as it's not used illegally they don't care. If you read their network report for new years eve just gone you will see just how much their network can handle. I get about 4mbps upload at home at the moment so it's well and truely replaced my home connection!

Im hoping to get a new phone when I upgrade soon

Do you have a link to that report by any chance, I was going to wait till march for the Samsung galaxy S3 but then i thought to my self that dates only a rumour and knowing my luck it wouldn't come out till end of year then id of missed out on a few months worth of phone and the S2 is still one of the best phones out there so i took the plunge and signed up lol (got a crapberry at min that spends more time crashing and booting than actually working so couldn't cope another 2 months with it )

You got the H symbol? It can take a few days for your data connection to settle down. I am sure mobile BB via a phone will never be as fast as mobile bb on a dongle - otherwise dongles would not sell!

Keep the faith smile
