Verizon always charged a separate fee for tethering/hotspot on unlimited plans.
However I have had Verizon for a gazillion years and the price was $20 so i save $10. However anyone trying to get it now will pay $30 for that 2 GB. That is just the way it is.
T-Mobile has unlimited everything plans for $80 with 2.5 GB of free tethering per month.
