Submission + - UK carrier demands 50% markup for iPhone tethering (o2.co.uk)

uglyduckling writes: "UK carrier O2 is demanding a GBP 14.68 'bolt-on' fee each month to enable tethering with the new iPhone software, which represents a 50% mark-up over their usual baseline tariff which already includes 'unlimited data'. This is limited to 3Gb, which makes it a whole penny cheaper than just using their pay monthly dongle for the same amount of data. UK customers could consider complaining to Ofcom, the telecoms regulator."
