Tethering has always been great for the consumers and bad for the companies – ostensibly because it overloads the bandwidth but really because most tethering has been done under the radar by hax0rs and it essentially circumvents the limitation of bandwidth providers put on there in the first place.

Well, Sprint is officially outlawing it on their Android phones and, as we know, once it’s outlawed, only outlaws will tether. Not quite sure how they’ll control it but clearly they’ll be watching throughput to confirm you’re not stealing bits.
