AT&T Confirms Tethering Coming to iPhone in 2009

It was rumored earlier that AT&T and Apple were in discussions over tethering. And at the Web 2.0 Summit, AT&T Mobility CEO Ralph De La Vega indicated in an interview with Michael Arrington that an official, AT&T sanctioned method of tethering (using the iPhone as a 3G modem) is on the coming "soon."

There are already some tethering apps for jailbroken phones, such as PDANet, but nothing you can download from the App Store, at least not since NetShare was pulled from the store.

It's unclear when AT&T will roll out the tethering service; some point in 2009 is the only vague indication given.

Would that mean that both PDANet (denied from the start) and NetShare would be allowed into the App Store then? And will the tethering service cap usage? If you look at the tethering service for the BlackBerry Bold, for example, it's capped at 5 GB. Guess we'll have to wait and see.

That's awesome. My trusty old slvr teathers and it really came in handy when I moved and had no connection for a few weeks.

That wouldn't be a problem nowadays.  (Unless you have no neighbors)
