Macworld reports that Verizon will offer iOS’s hotspot feature for an additional $20/month which will include an additional 2GB of data.  Since most users will be getting unlimited data plans, we’re not sure how useful that 2GB will be.

While not as cheap as jailbreaking, it is the same price that AT&T charges for tethering without offering extra data.  Also, you can connect your iPad, your MacBook and your friends’ devices to the soon to be crippled Verizon network.
