Ringplus has opened up tethering on all accounts for free for the remainder of the year (starting December 24th).

Their announcement:

As a thank you, we also will open tethering on all accounts for free for the remainder of the year (starting December 24th), as we want our Members to also have internet access when visiting friends and family during the Holiday Season.

Turning your smartphone into a mobile hotspot

You can use the internet on your laptop or desktop through your smartphone's tethering function which is usually called something like wifi hotspot

So what happens after 1/1? How do they stop people from tethering? AFAIK as long as the APN type is configured with dun you should be able to tether, correct?

Even with this, you're using your data bucket. It's not quite "free."

It's automatic right now on the Ring+ carrier as long as your phone can enable tethering and is capable of it

It was always "free" if you were smart enough, they just made it legal for a week.
