    How does VM's tethering app ($15/mo) compare to root tethering apps? I'm currently using WiFi Tether which comes with most custom roms. If there is a speed/reliability increase I might just spend the extra money for it. Just for the record I barely hit 1.5gig a month on data. So no worries there.
    Thanks,
    Chris

    When I first got my phone, I paid for the service for the first month and then used Wifi Tether the second. Personally, I didn't see much of a difference. Of course, I didn't run any speed tests or anything to confirm but seemed the same. If anybody has tested with actual speed results, feel free to let us know

    Most 3rd party Tether apps like Barnacle WiFi support enterprise networks. Meaning you can now (With 3rd party app) bridge VIA Wifi the IP4&IP6 etc. over a wired or wireless network. I.E. you can turn you phone into a broadband router. Speed will be approximately the same in my experience, possibly a higher ping on 3rd party's. What it comes down to; do you want stock (with 2-3 options) or 3rd party which gives you a multitude of options.
