Default HTC Thunderbolt rooted wireless tethering

Anyone know if it is a good chance we can get this on this phone? That is all I need.
BTW. I am in the LTE area. If I can tether my laptop to this phone and I will get LTE speed on my laptop?

Thx in advance

Definitely. You'll even be able to do this if you don't root - it may just cost ya a bit more.

Also, from what I understood, there will not be data caps initially but they may reevaluate this further down the road.

In time, there will be a rooted/tethering solution. Give it a short time after official launch.

Considering the RUU has been leaked I am sure the devs are hard at work on building a nice GB ROM in time for the device to be launched.
