    I was curious if anyone else was getting these speeds when they are tethering or browsing....?

    Thats not data speed...You are tethering.(Which by the way is against MetroPCS Terms Of Service ;)) Thats the amount of data you have downloaded and uploaded. The numbers below it is your speed ;)

    Correct.


    If you were getting even half of your 64mb/s metro would be the most popular cell phone carrier in the world

    My bad, misinterpreted the numbers, lol.
    I'm not at all sure it is against their "terms of service"... tethering is a available option on atleast 2 phones that are for sale on their website right now...

    le sigh, tether has not worked for me like at all.


    Edit: scratch that, i am a victim of laziness, i didn't search before i posted for Tokenpoke's post on how to take care of my problem. Very easy and bless him for doing it.

    It is in your case. To use those 2 phones with mobile hot spot you have to buy the additional plan. You can't use those phones as a mobile hot spot (legally) unless you purchase the additional plan. If you go and buy one of those phones and try to use the mobile hot spot feature and you haven't purchased the additional plan it'll tell you that your does not have permission to access the mobile hot spot feature. It's also a reason why Metro has blocked tethering for months and months now.

    At any rate, tethering is one of many reasons people root their phones. I have a actual payed for internet connection at home that has just not really been to usable this past week, so this would be one of the rare occasion that I actually use my tethering app... can't say that I feel like a criminal or feel that I'm doing something illegal for using it. It seems safe to say none of the countless Connect users that are tethering feel to guilty about using it either.....
    But should the suits show up to get all us tethering criminals, I'm sure we'll all be pleading "NOT guilty"! Lol!

    The fcc just told Verizon that it had to let users who did not have unlimited data have access to tether apps, so I imagine it's only a matter of time before other carriers have to follow suit.

    You are paying for the data already, it makes sense to be able to use it anyway you want.

    Those with unlimited data is another story though.
