Microsoft has indicated that it is still working to add the tethering feature to its Windows Phone 7 platform. In response to questions on the Windows Phone Developers Blog, Microsoft's Matt Bencke said, "I appreciate your pain around tethering. Tethering, in the past was something that we managed independently of the mobile operators. In recent years, the mobile operators have now taken ownership of this functionality [across] all platforms. We are continually working with them and our OEM partners to enable this functionality for our devices." Bencke noted that while it has no solid announcements to make at this time, WP7 users should "stay tuned." U.S. operators allow for tethering on select devices and typically charge an extra $20 per month for the feature.

Carrier Based Tethering is anti-consumer

I hate that they are worrying about what the carriers want instead of what the end-users want, but the carriers are there real customers.
