Which networks don't charge extra for tethering?

Which networks allow tethering as part of the normal data allowance?

Three on The One Plan
T-Mobile, as they never overcharge for any kind of data use (apart from roaming)

They're the only two I can think of but I'm sure there are some virtual operators who allow tethering, they need some kind of selling point, after all.

Matt, since you mention The One Plan on Three, it might be worth menitioning that the equivalent tariff for T-Mobile (that officially supports tethering) is the Full Monty? Giff Gaff seems to be one of the most popular (if not most) virtual networks for this kind of thing. In my limited knowledge, it uses o2's signal and it works with "goody-bags", effectively allowing you to purchase bundles each month like a customisable contract. Might be worth looking into!

Giff-Gaff actively block users who tether. It's explicitly banned in their T&Cs. As for the Full Monty Plan, you're right but why bother paying so much when T-Mobile's T&Cs state you won't be charged any more than you pay in your pre-determined plan, for data usage? Seems a bit pointless to me. I'd recommend the Full Monty for its truly unlimited data, not the fact tethering is permitted. I've been with T-Mob for years and not once have they ever even mentioned my tethering.
