Let my Wi-Fi go: FCC rules Verizon can't charge for Wi-Fi tethering | ZDNet
That doesn't apply to those of us with grandfathered unlimited data.

From the link you posted: "consumers on usage-based pricing plans may tether, using any application, without paying an additional fee..."

Unlimited data is not a "usage-based pricing" plan.

So I continue using FoxFi.
