I currently have the Talk & Surf 1 GB Plan.  I would like to switch to the Talk & Surf Unlimited Data Plan, but in doing so I would lose the ability to tether my iPad.  I don't expect unlimited tethering, but even a 1GB cap on tethering should be included in the unlimited data plan.

In addition to the 5GB plan option that Justin refers to, we do have a plan, the $95 Talk & Surf All In Plan that includes Unlimited Data on device & tethering, Unlimited Canada Wide calling, Unlimited Messaging, and enhanced voicemail.  

To answer Justin's question on ease of switching plans, we do allow you to switch at any time up or down as long as you maintain the minimum plan level associated with the subsidized hardware you received.  For example, the current minimum plan for a subsidized smartphone today is $50...customers can move up or down from their plan as long as they maintain the $50 minimum.
