    Default Kind of hypocritical of them to be for net neutrality?

    If they are for it wouldn't that mean they should let us do hotspot as well or that is different?

    Just remember, most companies are only interested in one thing: money.

    An argument can be made that not providing customers with the option to use their devices as a hotspot does not fall in the parameters below unless you tie the term "hotspot" to that of being an "application".

    "....not discriminating or charging differentially by user, content, site, platform, application, type of attached equipment, or mode of communication."

    Ah I was just curious. I was thinking of net neutrality for some reason and thought of how sprint said they were for it but doesn't allow it for free.

    They like it when customers pay for wireless hotspot plans. They don't like giving it away for free.
