Yesterday we mentioned the pricing for the new iPad data plans for both Verizon Wireless and AT&T. And well, while we had the pricing, it looks like there is also something else worth mentioning — something that will be included with one carrier but not the other. That feature is Mobile Hotspot and those choosing to get a Verizon Wireless data plan will get to enjoy tethering at no additional charge. Bottom line here, the details have been confirmed by the respective carriers who each had this to say;
Verizon Wireless

“The new iPad on the Verizon Wireless network will have the mobile hotspot feature. Our 4G LTE tablets have the mobile hotspot feature and it is included in the tablet data plans so for example, customers who sign up for the $30 for 2GB plan will also have access to the mobile hotspot feature.”

And AT&T

“We are working with Apple to enable this feature in the future, but we currently do not offer it.”
