Contest: 10 Premium Redeem Codes for Koush’s Tether App Up For Grabs

Koush’s Tethering app is all the rage these days in Android. It has given those that aren’t interested in rooting, an opportunity to tether from their phone to a computer with little hassle. Tato has actually given it some good run here at CES and would definitely recommend it.

To celebrate its official release this week, Koush handed us 10 premium redeem codes to get a set of DL readers up and taking full advantage of their data packages. After all, you do pay for it, so why not use it however you want, right? That’s probably a conversation for another day. ūüôā

So here is the deal. To enter to win, all you have to do is tell us how much data you consume on average each month and if you use any sort of tethering service on a regular basis. Simple enough?

Later this evening when we leave the show floor, we will pick the 10 winners.


  • RickX93277

    I’ve never even looked at the amount of data that I use.¬† When I checked it has been around 1gb, I have been doing less than normal the last few months, but would love to get a good tether app.¬† I can’t wait until a good wireless tether comes out too

  • Anonymous

    3-4 GBs, no tethering service. 

  • MWK

    I use approximately 5 – 6 GB monthly for work and some play.

  • I’m on an¬†unlimited¬†plan and usually consume about 4-5GB of data a month. I tether a couple days a week with WiFi Tether and it works wonderfully. There’s nothing like going on a road trip and having 3 passengers surfing the internet on their tablets and laptops.

  • T4rd

    I rarely go over 3-4 GBs.  I tether a lot at work though to test VPN connections for soldiers/officers to connect to their work resources while at home (which they need to often).


  • M.D.

    Between 4-5 GB’s a month watching netflix, HBOGO on the train going and coming from work.¬† Had the free mobile hotspot on TB until verizon took it away with an update.¬† Don’t want to root and would love to be able to find an app that would let me use it again for my daughter’s tablet, while we’re in the car.

  • I use around 7-13GB a month and I tether when I am in a pinch… I don’t believe because we have “unlimited” we should use it for everything… That is why my wife has to have a¬†ridiculous¬†tiered plan! If i was going to use it for home internet ,I would pay the measly 30 bucks a month to VZW…

  • Josh Gray

    6-10 GB’s. Depending on how much traveling.¬†

  • Anonymous

    working in sales and traveling mean constant tethering for me. use it for work during the “day” and infotainment at night. Running¬†
    CyanogenMod for tethering, but may have to switch to a non-rooted 4g for work in the coming weeks. this would really save me

  • 2 gb ish on my bionic! ūüėÄ

    My wife and I tether for a total of about 2GB of month. She currently uses PDANet as she is unrooted on her Incredible. I use (without much success) Wifi Tether for Root on my Galaxy Nexus.

  • Only about 1G/month. ¬†Still mostly use WiFi at home and the office.

  • Anonymous

    Even on a grandfathered unlimited plan, I rarely breach 2GBs since I’m always around wi-fi and computers. As a contractor though, tether is hella useful for me when I’m stuck on client site without access to their network (usually the case on govt sites). wireless tether on root ftw!

  • Michael Black

    I use between 6-9 GB per month tethering to 2 different laptops and a tablet. I currently use the googlecode wifi tethering app. My fiance tethers the same devices while I am work on her OG Droid running CM7 (yes it is still running strong).

  • I use about 1.5 g of data a month. But if I could tether my Samsung Nexus to my Samsung Tab 10.1 I would make use of my 5 gb (unlimited) Verizon plan.

    A wireless tether premium subscription would allow me to share my 4g with my family rather than having to pass my phone around on trips! As far as data I am unlimited so I don’t keep track but the rest of family is on the Verizon capped service, therefore my phone because a hot commodity! Please hook me up so I can share the love!

    DL, I have never been able to tether before! I would love to get my grubby hands on this and see what all the rage is about. I work in a place where we have no wifi at all and I would LOVE to be able to do this. Hope you’re having fun at CES!¬†

  • Mr ilheis

    I use 3GB of data a month on average. Now that I have a G-Nex and I still have the Inc. with no data it would be nice when I’m out and about to tether the In.c to the G-Nex. using this App.

  • Drewfus0929

    I use about 12 gigs of data, most of it streaming music. Some tethering when the internet at school is failing.

  • Ryan Bianchi

    Used to pull 8 gb on the ole Droid X. Now since getting the nexus I can only imagine the 4G kicking it up into the double digits. Would love to ditch the VZW mobile hot spot on my bill though

  • About 2GB then I get throttled down. From there on I can¬†probably¬†get another 200MB. I would so love Koush’s new tether app ūüôā

  • Anonymous

    I use about 5 gigabytes of data per month for Netflix and music. Google music is a data vacuum. Kids love Netflix while at restaurants. And we eat out 5 times a wweek. Since I got the galaxy nexus I haven’t tethered. I would use my DX tethered to my wifi xoom in the offices boxes they block streaming music. I would also tether in restaurants for the kids to watch cartoons on xoom.

  • Anonymous

    On average, I use about 2GB a month (not very flash heavy) and I’ve been using Open Garden to tether to my buddies Xbox, since he doesn’t have the internet where he lives yet. It’s worked well enough to scrape by in MW3 matches!

  • i use about 6-8 GB a month, usually streaming music and podcasts in the car… and checking my news feeds!

  • Brian

    Around 1gb per month before the nexus. Not sure how much these days, but I tether when im out and need to get some work done!

  • Sidra

    I’ve been averaging around 1 GB a month, but I just started using Google Music, so it’s sure to go up! Don’t tether much, but it’s a lifesaver when my home internet goes out, which is all too common.

    I once had the power go out at 3am while I was studying for an exam. I was able to use my phone to tether and spent the next two hours studying in a dark room lit by candles and my laptop screen.

  • Nick20719

    I tether about 7-10 GB’s each month on unlimited and that was with a Droid X. Now my girlfriend who has a Droid 3 has been wanting to do the same but is afraid of rooting, and is afraid of me rooting it because if i’m not there and something goes wrong with her phone, shes screwed haha. This would be wonderful for her!

  • About 4GB every month. Most of my drain is streaming google music. I don’t tether often, but I sometimes do use the tethering abilities of CM7 on my LG G2x to do so. So sad that the lg g2x is at end of life…never again LG.

  • Scott Corey

    Usually a little under a gig. I don’t tether much, generally when my apartment’s internet is particularly awful.

  • Don’t have a tethering plan on my Galaxy Nexus and wouldn’t like to pay VZW an arm and a leg for the privilege to use the data I’m paying for on any devices I want ūüôĀ I use about 7-8 GB a month.

  • I tether a couple times a week usually at school because the Wifi there is sketchy depending upon what building you are in. ¬†I usually use WIFI Tether but it occasionally times out. ¬†I use about 5GB of data a month on average.

  • Time4tim

    I use between 2 and 3 GB a month. I currently use Easy Tether. Would love to try something a little easier to load.

  • NDroid

    I use about 1 – 2 GB depending on whether the music i’m listening to is local, or on the cloud.¬† I rarely tether, but find it essential when I visit the in-laws who have no internet (yes, people without internet exist).¬† I’m not a tether abuser, but do wish I had the option when it is necessary.

  • I use around 7GB/week, I have an unlimited plan, so this would be awesome!

  • Elo777

    I use around 3 gigs/month on a unlimited plan. Listening to music, slingbox and checking weather radars and such due to my weather hobby.

  • I would love to not be bothered by VZW slowing me down. Also, the tethering app I use right now is very unreliable, and stops every once and a while. Blarghl.

  • On my old 3g anywhere from 2GB to 6GB depending on how much time I spend streaming. I did pay for tethering for a while when I was more on the go with my devices, I stole it for a while of course, I pay for the data they sold me, I feel as if it’s mine, even though my contract states otherwise. Damn fleecers.

    I use EasyTether Pro at the moment and use around 4GB per month, but I’m very sure Koush’s app is much much better, and more well-supported! Go Koush!

  • I use about 2-3GB a month. Mostly Google Music, Nav and Podcasts. A 1.5hr commute one way keeps the data connection going. I don’t tether, but have tried Wireless Tether just to see it work.

  • I average 5GB/mo during ‘light’ months, and then upwards of 20GB during ‘heavy’ months. All of that is on device only, but I recently dropped my crappy TWC for my shiny brand new VZW 4G LTE.

  • I use about 4gb a month. ¬†Try to stay under 5gb to keep off their radar.

  • Jascias Israel

    I tether about 3 gb a month. My school wifi seems to never work. So a lot of my time studying in the library is tethered.

  • Anonymous

    I had unlimited data with Sprint using an original Palm Pre. ¬†I would tether my laptop and my tablet to that device and use somewhere between 4-5 Gb per month. ¬†I’m now sporting a Galaxy Nexus on Verizon with a data cap and I’ve been watching my data usage closely until I find out how much the normal activities of my device consume. ¬†I haven’t done any tethering on Android yet, but I would love to get my laptop and tablet back up and running with Koush’s app.

  • I use between 5 and 6 gb a month. I have the unlimited data plan and when I tether I use the wireless tether for root users app mostly… I have played with barnacle abit also.

  • Vettezx

  • Je49424

    I use my phone all day for my galaxy tab and Blackberry Playbook along with my HP Touch smart PC as I couldn’t afford Comcast anymore. I’m already at 32GB this month with my cycle restarting on the 17th. I also use my phone for work so tethering is HUGE on my beautiful Galaxy Nexus. Thanks Kellex and Koush!!

  • Aaron Victoriano

    On average i consume about .90Gb of data each month. I use my wi-fi as much as possible. I probably would start a tethering service especially since i got double the data now for verizon. But no i dont use that service yet. But hopefully soon!

    I just got my LTE phone a week ago but have been paying for “Unlimited Data” since July when Big Red stopped letting people get the Unlimited Plan. ¬†I have used 2GB this week so that would mean I average about 8GB a week. ¬†I haven’t used any tethering services yet and I could really use Koush’s Tethering app to get some more return on my investment as my Transformer is due to get ICS any day now . . . . . . . . ¬†

    I have yet to use tethering on my GNex(just rooted and installed AOKP 3 nights ago)but used it quite often on my DInc, OG and G1. At first I used easy tether and PDA net. When I first rooted my OG I used wireless tether for root. On the DInc I would use the built in GB tethering or the hacked VZW mobile hotspot.
    Its awesome that this works with Linux!

  • awesome contest!

    I use around 7-8GB in an average month, and currently pay for the unlimited wifi tethering.  What a rip off! $29.99 to use my already unlimited data? blech

  • I use about 1-3 GB per month, with a few ROM downloads, a lot of apps, and a LOT of browsing (mostly DL and The Verge; nobody else comes close). I don’t tether too much right now because Wireless Tether doesn’t work all the time, and when I do, it’s mostly tethering my friend up who cannot access the¬†WiFi¬†at school for some reason so I can help him with his Minecraft mods. Also, a wired tether would be so nice because when my home internet goes down, I have no options because my desktop doesn’t have WiFi.

  • Mike Bohde

    I use an average of 8GB a month. Tethering comes in very handy at work to avoid dealing with their firewall. A code would be very appreciated.

  • Being able to tether more reliably with a great USB tether app would help me upload my Android tweaks so much faster! I occasionally use a wifi tether, most recently so my cousin’s kids could stream the Jetsons movie on their kindle fire. My monthly data usage used to be around 2GB, but now that I have LTE (GNex) I really want to make use of my unlimited plan

  • I use 12-18GB a month. ¬†Work blocks EVERYTHING and tethering is a nice way to bypass that! ¬†I previously used PDA.net but Kouch’s Tether works without the admin install needed on our machines.

  • Around 8 GB, I’m not a heavy user, but my parents think I use too much. I use as much of the lite tethering apps as I can. You can’t blame me for being cheap, can you?

  • steven ross

    I use between 1.5 to 2.5 gb per month, not tethering. ¬†Verizon caught me when using wifi tether using wifi tether for root so I haven’t used tethering in a while. ¬†Would love a new option.

    Looking back at previous statements, I use 2 – 2.5 gigs/month on average. I’m still on an unlimited plan, so I don’t think about that too often. It would be great if I could tether my phone to my laptop when I’m traveling. I don’t use any sort of tethering service at the present time. I’m unrooted. I used to when I was rooted on my old HTC Incredible.

  • I use roughly 6-8GB when im using pdanet.. but if im working a lot.. i use about 3GB.. DX2

    I average about 1-2 GB nowadays. I don’t really use the internet too much anymore – just browsing webpages. No streaming music or tv or anything. I have a tethering app, but not used on a daily basis. Only when I’m out on the road and there aren’t any open/free wireless spots do I use it.

  • jonathon johnston

    I use about 1-1.5gb of data (am on wifi when at home). I do use tethering at work (lately have been using the free version of Koush’s app) as we do not have wifi and occasionally I need to get a laptop outside of our network.

  • I just got my Galaxy Nexus and it still hasn’t been a whole month but I’ve used about 3.78 GB of 3G/4G plus about 1.2 GB of wifi. I cannot be sure of the numbers since I’ve had to reset my phone twice. Before that I had an OG Droid and would cap at a maximum of around 750MB. I still have about four days left in my cycle. Most of my data usage is due to my love for Google Music.

  • Jake

    According to Verizon I average 3.426 GB of data per month.  I do not currently use any tethering solutions, but I used to be able to use my stock Droid X as a bluetooth modem to tether pretty reliably with my macbook. I was always amazed that it was possible to tether it without a tethering plan or third-party workarounds. The bluetooth was pretty easygoing on the battery too.

  • I only use about 2 gigs but when I did tether I used 5-7 gigs. As you see I don’t tether anymore. :/

  • Jordan Friedman

    When I’m up at school I use about 4GB, and that’s without tethering. Hooray for unlimited 4G data!

    I use around 8GB but tend to keep the tethering to a bare minimum to keep from raising any red flags (and risk losing my precious unlimited data).

    Last month my gf used 78GB!!! ¬†I showed her how to use her new Rezound to download torrents and a season or two of Vampire Diaries that was allowed to constantly upload and you have her scared that VZW was going to take away her unlimited data… ¬†Yup, that’s my girl!

  • 4ish gigs a month on average. No tethering, but lots of music streaming! ūüôā

  • I typically use 20-40 gb a month. I play online poker and that uses a lot of data. There may also be some viewings of movies and such as well that takes up quite a bit. I use pdanet to connect my laptop… although not that happy with it. I have used wifi tether and some other ones in the market… but none of them are reliable enough. When you are playing for real money you can’t really take the chance of losing a big pot due to a bad connection… so I would love to have a shot at this, as I know he puts out good work.

    I had a DX and now have the GNexus on VZW. I used the DX with PDANet for ages. Comes in real handy during some of my work in areas without open WiFi. Since I’ve changed jobs and phones I’ve found that I need the tethering less – but with my new laptop I tend to hook-in about once a week for 15 minutes or so of email checking.

    Data wise РI miss having unlimited everything. I monitor my data usage (3G only here in eastern NC) but I tend to use ~1.75 Р2GB per month. I grab a few podcasts everyday and that tends to be the big data guzzler along with Google Music. 

    Absolutely love Koush’s tether app. Downloaded it as soon as he released it and have used it a couple of times now. Would like the full functionality, for certain!

    2.5 Gigs a month. Tethered during the promo and haven’t since.. have missed it a few times for sure though. I think paying for tethering on an UNLIMITED or even more so LIMITED plan is just a crock. Its like getting an HD Cable box and having to pay an extra fee to access the HD content… oh wait… (All BS!)

  • I use about 2.75GB per month, used to have WiFi Tether… helpless right now

  • Half ¬†gig every month. ¬†I use it on the road (Road Warrior) for upload and download of critical Docs when away from wifi. ¬†I am always in clients homes and when I need a doc or have to send one out, that is how I do it – if Koush made that easier, Give the¬†genius¬†another candy bar! ¬†I’m a fan – and so was my droidX!

  • +14GB Hands down


    I use about 2GB per month (unlimited data) and tether only when I don’t have free internet readily available (on vacation, etc).

    I usually use about 4 GB every month. I spend a lot of time on Wi-Fi so I don’t get a ton of use out of it. I don’t regularly use any tethering because I’m not willing to pay Verizon’s premium for it and I’ve yet to root my phone. This would be a great reason to though. Keep up the good work DL!

  • Zachary Baltrip

    Since I got my G-Nex and have redeveloped my passions for flashing ROMs (came from DROID Charge, not much stuff to flash…) I’ve blown through just slightly over 10 GB last month. I live out in the boonies and all we get is dial-up (yes, I’m serious, 56k…) so when I need to use the Internet I tether my phone because even it’s 3g connection is much faster. And yes I may lag when I play Star Wars the Old Republic, but dammit, at least get to play! ūüôā

  • AngryTurd

    Wow, I’ve only been averaging 236 MB the last few months. Probably cuz I’m still on my OG Droid. This app could have come in really handy the last 2 nights since my home internet was down. Ugh!

    Anywhere from 2-4 GB per month and Wireless Tether, but it sucks the life from my battery.

  • I tether via OpenGarden and use approx. 60gb per month.¬† I have to tether for work though, or else I wouldn’t be able to have the job I have.

  • I wanted a tethering program for unrooted users for the longest time. I use about 1-5 gbs a month on my phone via grandfathered into unlimited VZN 3G. Im going to try the Koush trial¬†tonight to see if it works on my DX, fingers crossed.

  • Vtxtank

    I use wifi tether with mobile hotspot. I use about 10 to 15 GB / month. Between killing my battery and keeping it constantly tethered to a charger, I am making it barely. Would have an air card but employer is too cheap to foot the bill even though we have to send information to them constantly. Hope to get one of Koush’s free codes!!!

    I use between 1gb-10gb per month depending on how much I like my roms (go through about 5-10 in a month), and how many pictures I take (for things such as weddings, parties, other social events). On top of that, I build websites¬†regularly, and i don’t like to be home when I’m doing so, sooo my tethering app(s) get a lot of use.¬†=P

I’m courteous and use my home internet or wifi hotspots when I can. It’s always nice to have a backup should the home connection go down or there be no hotspot in the area, though. In the summer my usage goes up a bit because I go camping and obvious neither of those two options are available.

    I use my phone to tether for grabbing music off of my home computer to move over to my laptop for when i DJ and forget some music or if i need to go grab a quick song and have no wifi access.  I also use it to tether to my Xoom tablet while at work since the company locks down and filters internet websites (not Droid-Life though).

    I have 4 android phones on my family plan all rooted with wifi tether that is rarely used.
    Dinc 2gb per month on average
    DX2 1gb per month on average 
    D2 400mb per month on average 
    Razr 15gb last month

    Also all phones have unlimited data plans. 
    I currently use a Droid incredible but when I get a 4g phone I expect to use a lot more data and Tether more.

    I use 4- 6 GB/month between my phone and tethering to my laptop. I use barnacle wifi, and open garden wifi tether… They all are very slow even though I have a 4G/LTE phone.

  • I really don’t know. I’ve got unlimited data so I’ve never checked. I hop on wi-fi for the heavy stuff since 3g speeds around here just don’t cut it. If my router craps the bed I imagine I’d be up to about 3gigs a month.

    11-13gb a month. I use good ole wifi tether for android. But i did seem to notice faster speed using the usb tether on my old rooted droid.

  • Now that I have my new Galaxy Nexus I consume 8G to 10G and I have not used any Tethering application until now that Koush released the Alpha now official (non-root) tethering application I might end up using at least 15G each month.

    Hope you are all having a blast at CES and pick me as one of the winners.
