I entirely agree with you, wodin. Just saying why I think there is the additional charge for tethering.

If I had tethering (for which I'd have to pay £5/month more) I'm certain that I would use all my data allowance every month.
IOW, people who tether are paying twice for their data. Not very kosher.
