Disagree, the lack of tethering option on the account does not matter. To the network it is just like using the mini shops built into the phone for ringtones, ect..... The network does not know the difference. In fact they both acquire the same IP address. One is just assigned to an external MAC address and the other one an Internal. That is the only way the carrier can tell that you are even tethering, well that and bandwidth usage.

Don't know if you put the A) B) C) in a specific order. But if you did, I would reverse it going 1)Broadband Coverage 2)Network 3)Type of phone.

The other thing to consider would be the USB ports them self (assuming it's a USB connection) are they 1.1 USB ports or 2.0 ports. 1.1's cut your speed just about in half.

Let me know if you disagree.
