I understand this Tesco contract doesn't do tethering on an iPhone but I have managed to setup tethering and portable hotspot with a HTC Android phone. Can Tesco mobile know the data is tethering or not? Will the tethering data come out from my 1GB allowance? Does Tesco reduce the data speed to GPRS once you used up all your data?

I just spoken to Tesco and they said they will not throttling from 3G to GPRS because they will change 60p per MB!! oO Which I told them to put a cap on my data which I can't goes over my allowance. They also have to cap my call allowance too. They can't just cap either call or data :(

Regarding about the tethering, Tesco said they do not have tethering service but they said it's coming soon. I can see they removed the tethering option from an iPhone but not on the Android phone. Tesco also said the tethering data will be coming out from your data allowance once the service is up and running.

Does anyone here managed to setup tethering and portable hotspot on your Android phone with this SIM? I haven't seen my bill yet so I don't know if the tethering data get charge separately. I don't want to end up getting a big bill with my tethering data from Tesco mobile.
