Whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa!

Okay, where's Hansolo when you need a lawyer? I read this as "Hey Chief, tether away because Verizon can't do a thing about it"! HOWEVER:

That last line that reads "The FCC, however, has not limited Verizon’s right to charge customers on unlimited data plans additional fees for tethering" concerns me.

Does that mean that Verizon can still bust those of us on unlimited data, and unlimited data ONLY? Will they not fine use or make us pay fees, but merely kick us out of unlimited for tethering? What does this article actually SAY to us?
