The latest version of Apple iOS supports the personal hotspot feature which enables iPhone 4 users to connect via WiFi up to five other devices and is expected to land as of the 11th of this month, and Canadian iPhone 4 users will be able to use that personal hotspot feature.
The guys over at Mobile Syrup contacted Canadian carriers Rogers Wireless, Bell, Telus, Virgin and Fido and all have confirmed they will support the feature found in iOS 4.3.
Telus says…“TELUS will enable the upcoming iPhone 4 iOS 4.3 Mobile Hotspot,” while Bell confirmed…“Yes, we will.. All our in-market plans support this use and we advise existing customers to check and see if their plan covers the use too.”
Virgin stated… “Regarding the iPhone upgrade, when Apple makes this available, Members can go in to iTunes to get the upgrade and yes, they will be able to use the Mobile Hotspot. No restriction on plan or anything. However, Members will of course still be charged for any data use outside of their plan so they should make sure they have the right plan for the amount of data they’ll need.”
And Rogers said…“This feature will be available at no additional charge for Rogers and Fido customers who subscribe to data plans of 1GB and above.”
So there you have it iPhone users of Canada, you will be able to use the iOS 4.3 personal hotspot once it becomes available are you overjoyed?
