Verizon to Allow Third-Party Tethering Apps on Android Phones
I have been using an application called Foxfi from the Google Play store for my hotspot. It is a free application and does not require any technical background to use. The app is very simple to use and works great. I also pay for the Verizon hotspots feature so I could test the performance of both and it seems I get better service from the free application Foxfi. Read the ruling by the FCC
Verizon Wireless response.” We still offer Mobile Broadband Connect, and the fee applies to customers using unlimited data plans. If a usage-based customer wants to subscribe, or continue to subscribe, to Mobile Broadband Connect, they can do so. They get both a high-quality robust tethering app and additional data allowances. On the other hand, a usage-based customer that wishes to tether other devices but does not wish to subscribe to Mobile Broadband Connect can cancel the service, purchase or obtain a third-party tethering application, and simply pay for the additional data usage”.
