Verizon seems to be preparing to nickel and dime Droid customers. We learned yesterday that the big red would be charging an additional $15 a month for Exchange support and now we learn that an internet tethering plan will also be available.
However, unlike the Exchange support the internet tethering plan will not be immediately available, instead users will have to wait until sometime in “early 2010.” That said, the tethering will come in the form of Verizon’s Broadband Access Connect plan.
Price wise, expect to pay an additional $15 a month. Not bad, and in comparison to the price for Exchange support the tethering sounds like a bargain. Just one word of caution, Verizon has a 5GB cap on data, so make sure you monitor your usage.
