tethering is working for some customers around the world, just dont know of anyone tested it yet for the GM release on 3HK. i know it was working for beta versions, but again there has been no mention of if 3HK charges extra for these data connections through tethering. i dont want to do it and find a large sum of money being collected later on.
as for speeds...yes...sadly i know. 3G on the #HK network seems comparable to 2G speeds most of the time. although sometimes i am in a special spot that will connect fast. I am starting to hate 3HK since i am getting more and more spots around HK where the connection drops off completely and suddenly. and this is in places that i know used to work a year ago with same phone and same 3G plan. it seems they got an increase in users and the network fell apart? i dont know.
