Verizon iPhone Hotspot Feature to Cost $20 Extra Per Month

Macworld has gotten word from Verizon that using your iPhone as a mobile hotspot will cost $20 per month, on top of usual monthly data fee (though, the extra Jackson will come with two additional gigabytes of bandwidth for hotspot use). If you’re planning to purchase a Verizon iPhone 4 to use as a hotspot, act quickly, because the unlimited data plan won’t be around forever (and going over your allotted limit will cost another $20/GB).

There are alternatives to cutting off an arm and a leg for the hotspot privilege: MyWi is available for jailbroken phones, and costs just $19.99.
