Sprint Confirms 5GB Data Cap for Hotspot Add-On
Sprint today confirmed to Phone Scoop via email that it is making a change to its Mobile Hotspot add-on plan. Starting October 2, the $29.99 Mobile Hotspot feature will have a 5GB data allowance for 3G or combined 3G/4G usage. Sprint spokesperson Emmy Anderson said, however, that Sprint continues to offer unlimited data for phones in its Everything Data and Simply Everything plans. Mobile Hotspot data consumption is calculated independent of a customer’s phone data consumption.

I wish that
Good Thing for Root and other OS'
Also, previous platforms, such as Windows Mobile never had to pay for hotspot anyways and should stay exempt also..
Stealing bandwidth is inexcusable, and I hope Sprint joins the party and cracks down ...
