    Tethering Complaint Filed Against Verizon with FCC by Free Press



    The blocking of tethering apps by Verizon just got very real after a complaint was filed today through the FCC by Free Press which could potentially impact the future of LTE. This has been one of those hot subjects around Droid Life over the last few weeks, so we couldn’t help but smile a little when we saw a group of this magnitude taking it straight to the top.

    As you may recall, Droid-Life first reported news that tethering apps had either been removed or purposefully blocked from being viewed and downloaded to Verizon devices.

    Even if the complaints alleged are accurate, and I have no reason to doubt they aren't, Verizon can say that tethering violates their TOS and still cancel all the accounts that are tethering.

    Exactly, FBM. It all depends on what they want to allow or disallow.
