Three tethering limit


[link to this post]
 
hi guys,

As most already know three introduced a 2gb cap in regards to tethering with new contracts well I got a new contract and used tethering a few times with my tablet but the remaining allowance is stuck at 2gb.

Anyone else noticed this

bnot all new contracts, only contracts with included phones, so if you get sim only contract then is allowed.

My mobile blocks all attempts at tethering. I have even had to call them to remove a block when I wasnt even tethering.

My plan is unlimited data

Don't be too shocked if it stops tethering at some point.

When I was using a 600 minute Ultimate internet contract (SIM only), tethering on my Huawei worked some of the time, but after a wile kept being blocked, and then it got to a stage where I couldn't even browse straight after powering up the phone, and had to do a factory reset, so lost all unsaved data and apps...

Luckily I saw mention that the One Plan SIM only was going up at the end of January, and got it at the 15 quid price, so now have unlimited tethering (sometimes hit 2-3 GB a day, used 31 GB so far this month and about 2 weeks to go).
