Verizon Wireless wants to crack down on folks who perform illegal tethering on their devices – making subscribers wonder just how much control do they have over their data plan actually. If you happen to fall under the category of using unofficial apps to help you “tether illegally”, then you might want to sit up and take notice – as Verizon is pulling out all the stops to make sure that you will soon be unable to do so, where you will instead be redirected to a Verizon page that offers a legal method of doing so – by forking out another $20 each month, of course.

This is going to be painful for folks who have long been tethering for free after all this while, but if you are one who is always looking at the bright side of things, Verizon’s “offer” is generous compared to what AT&T is charging – $45 each month. It would be interesting to see how subscribers will react to the situation – do you find tethering to be a “need” rather than a “want”?
