Windows Phone has supported WIFI tethering for a while, but on many carriers this adds a significant premium to their contract.

Tether-X by Asleroid claims to solve this problem by allowing users to connect to their smartphone via an ad-hoc WIFI network and then use their apps built-in proxy server to access the internet, all without the knowledge of the carrier.tetherx

We have not had time to test the free app to see if it works, and if course no-one can be sure until their bill arrives if they did in fact get away with bypassing their carrier’s billing policies, but I do know this kind of app has been long awaited by Windows Phone users.

Find it in the Windows Phone Store here.
