    Pretty sure WiFi Tether is faster, but just want some ohter views/opinions/first hand experience.

    WiFi tether vs. PDAnet

    Or if you know another alternative, throw it out there.

    Just a Quick Note to User's who may not know ....

    WiFi tether requires your phone to be Rooted while PDAnet does not :)

    Sorry OP , But I have only used PDAnet as I'm not rooted so I can't tell you which one i think is faster. But what I can say is I found PDAnet to be Efficient , reliable and easy to use.

    no problem :) by the way, roughly the same speed test results. This is the faster of them all, using PDAnet. Slightly faster when looking at numbers. not as much as i thought. But it seems like pretty solid evidence.

    Anyone have experience with PDANet/Droid and Verizon? Do they tag on an additional data fee? I wasn't prompted to accept anything...

    I have the Droid Eris for Verizon and I use PDAnet as my main sorce of internet access since I can't afford internet service from a normal ISP. Its not lightning fast, but it works well enough. It probably violates Verizon's TOS (don't quote me), but for modest web browsing they can't really catch you. I wouldn't recommend alot of youtube use on this, nor many file d/l's... once in awile is ok.

    I prefer to use Wi-Fi tether for root because it allows you to create a network, similar to being a router. PDANet on the other hand requires your client PC to have their Desktop application installed.
