O2 has announced that owners of the new iPhone 3G S wanting to use it as a tethered modem would be charged an extra £15 per month. The tethering will allow the device to be used as an Internet modem with a laptop or netbook.

That may irritate some users who believe that the device should be able to be tethered for free since you already pay for internet access for the phone. However, AT&T in the US is simply not supporting the feature at all.
The iPhone 3G S will launch on the O2 network on June 19th bringing with it the new iPhone OS 3.0. The £15 plan will get you 3GB of data use per month. Any overages will cost you 19.6p a megabyte, which can get expensive fast.
