Just for the info,Tethering means sharing the Internet connection of an Internet-capable mobile phone with other device. for example, Tethering lets you use your phone’s 3G connection to access the internet on your laptop, using either Bluetooth or a USB cable.

Previously Tether.com released its product for BlackBerry in 2009 so users would no longer experience the frustration of being unable to find a WiFi hotspot when most needed. After a little more than two years, Tether.com now provides 500,000 BlackBerry and Android users with a dependable Internet connection for their laptops and desktops, using their existing smartphone data plans.
About this service by Tim Burke, CEO of Tether,
“It was clear from our initial application iTether, there was enormous demand within the iPhone ecosystem”. “It was unfortunate that Apple decided to remove our application, only 20 hours after we launched. However, this caused us to innovate. Our underlying patent-pending technology behind Tether for iPhone is unlike anything on the market.”
Tether’s new version for the iPhone is purely based on HTML5 and creates a completely wireless connection over AdHoc. The biggest benefit of the service is price. Tether normally charges its users $30 a year for being able to turn your iPhone or iPad into your own Internet connection for your laptop.
