Orange's Official Tethering Policy
Orange's official tethering policy
According to the Orange's Terms of Service (ToS) available at http://www1.orange.co.uk/mobileterms/pdfs/PAYM-Animal-Excluding-Panther-Extra-Package-Terms-and-Conditions-20111018.pdf
Orange's official policy about tethering is
Inclusive Tethering: Youíll need to be on one of our selected plans and have a compatible phone and computer. Tethering is subject to coverage and the allowances set out for your plan. Tethering (whether as part of an inclusive allowance or not) is not to be used for other services such as non-Orange internet based streaming services, voice or video over the internet, instant messaging, peer to peer file sharing.
Tethering: If you have used up any inclusive tethering allowance you may have, or if you use tethering on a plan without an inclusive allowance, itíll cost a daily flat rate of £1 a day. If youíre on a plan that includes mobile internet and tethering and you use up your total data allowance for both services, youíll pay £1 a day if you use tethering and £1 a day if you use mobile internet (as described above). This is subject to a daily fair usage allowance of 25MB tethering. Please note, should you reach your 500MB limit before the end of the monthly period, network protection controls may be applied to your service. This may result in a reduced speed of transmission and/or disconnection.
Prior to 6 September 2011 tethering was not available on any tariff. After 6 September 2011 tethering is included on the Panther tariff only. If you are on any other tariff you will be charged for tethering each day you use it with a limit on how much data can be used. If you want inclusive tethering please swith to the appropriate tariff at the link below.
