AT&T, American exclusive carrier of the iPhone, has announced that sometime next year it will officially allow tethering -a process that turns your mobile device into a wireless modem that can be used to provide an internet connecton to your laptop or other internet enabled device- for iPhone users.
While giving an interview to Michael Arrington at the Web 2.0 Summit, AT&T Mobility CEO Ralph De La Vega confirmed that it will happen next year.
However, he did not provide any pricing information for this service, and it is possible that users will have to incur additional costs for using tethering (in addition to their regular mobile price).
