Telus Confirms iOS 4.3 Personal Hotspot


Yesterday Rogers confirmed that they would support the Personal Hotspot feature coming in iOS 4.3. Today, Telus has done the same via twitter via a conversation with user @nickfruhling:

@TELUSsupport Good morning, wondering if Telus will support iOS 4.3 Personal Hotspot feature when it comes to iPhones next Friday. Thanks!

@TELUSsupport replied:

@nickfruhling Hi, Anthony here. Yes, as long as your data plan includes tethering

So there you have it. Telus is on board with Personal Hotspot.

Thanks to @nickfruhling for the heads up!


  • I had the same conversation with Anthony @TELUSsupport, too. Glad to see this will be covered under our existing plans.

    I already have the 55 students plan…. Do you know if I will have the Personal Hotspot on iOS 4.3?

  • Coog

    What is hhis personal hotspot?

  • I have the Student 55 plan too, and tethering via USB definitely works, so I see no reason Personal Hotspot would not work.

    Thanks! Cellphone compagnies steal cash of his customers… call display is 8$!! 8$!! it cost nothing to Telus. They can do that with Personal Hotspot. I hope it will be free!
