I can understand limiting HOTSPOT because in that case you potentially have non-subscribers mooching off of VZs bandwidth. However, in USB tethering there is a one-to-one relationship between the subscriber's device and a computer. Therefore, what is the justification for this arbitrary fee? Am I missing something here?
That's what I'm saying. When I first heard about Froyo and tethering I thought "Sweet! Now I can work in the car during a road trip as long as there's a tower to hit", but $20 a month for the little I'd use that? And to limit it at 2GB? That's derp.

Sad panda.
