    Speakout/Petro-Canada Mobility with USB stick?

    I don't own a sim-compatible phone, but I do have a sim-based usb internet stick (similar to Rogers Rocket Stick).

    Would I be able to activate and use a Speakout/Petrocan data plan with the usb internet stick?

    If not, I guess my alternative would be to buy a very cheap sim phone and then use tethering. Did anyone try that successfully?

    I tried that when travelling in the U.S., and it failed but that was because (unbeknownst to me) AT&T used to block tethering on prepaid (and still does, below a certain dollar threshold).

    I don't see why the tethering option wouldn't work, so long as you have a device that supports tethering and a plan that supports it.

    That's what I'm asking here: do the Speakout/Petro-Canada Mobility plans support tethering?

    Did you research it and they didn't say? I seem to recall looking at it, and they did. But it's been a while since I checked. Failing that, ask them directly.
