I haven't really used tethering except to see that it works. Today I noticed that webpages redirect to a T Mobile page offering their tethering service. This is on the $30 plan with 5GB data

edit: but the fix seems as easy as a user agent switcher extension

edit2: because most user agents that work make a mobile page display, I looked for a UA string that works while providing the desktop site. Someone mentioned Linux Mint working with hotspot and this is the first one I found on google. It works!
