iPad 3 Tethering

| Comments

Three now have tethering available for the iPad 3, which can be read in the comments by moderators on the official post.

Three have many pricing strategies available but what is the full cost over the contract term? For analysis I have assumed that pay monthly contracts would also be kept for the full 24 months.
