Cricket, Boost Mobile, and Virgin Mobile all have tethering. But I wouldn't recommend them as Boost and Virgin run on sprints slow 3G network. Sure Boost and Virgin have a couple of wimax phones, but wimax is a joke. Cricket is rolling out lte as we speak (their own towers) and already have a couple of capable devices. T-Mobile prepaid does have a tethering add on, which apparently is not available for their $70 unlimited, un-throttled plan. So the $60 2GB of 4G plan will run $75 with tethering. Not the cheapest option considering Cricket includes it free in their $60 plan and $70 plan, which give you 2.5 and 5 GB of full speed data, respectively. Although for now full speed only means 3G. We'll have to see what their pricing on lte plans will be like. But considering their high phone prices and downgraded (excepting the S3), low power phones, I still don't think they're worth it.
