Verizon Ban on 4G Tethering Apps Violates Openness Rule, Complaint Alleges | Epicenter†| Wired.com

An activist group asked federal regulators Monday to require Verizon to allow its Android customers to use their 4G smart phones as modems for other devices, citing openness rules the carrier agreed to when it bought the spectrum in 2008.

FreePress, an online rights group that supports net neutrality, argues that the nationís largest wireless carrier asked Google to remove so-called tethering apps from the Android Market ó because Verizon wants to charge $20 a month for subscribers to use their phone as an ad hoc modem.
