The new MacBook - Starting at only $954.59!This past Saturday, we reported that “AT&T has failed to deliver the tethering to iPhone users as promised within a reasonable amount of time.”

At the end of our report, we asked readers to contact the following “artisans of bovine excrement” to ask them how long we iPhone users have to wait for the tethering capability that their company began promising in in November 2008:
• Randall L. Stephenson, AT&T Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President: randall.stephenson@att.com
• Ralph de la Vega, President and Chief Executive Officer, AT&T Mobility and Consumer Markets: ralph.delavega@att.com
• John T. Stankey, President and Chief Executive Officer, AT&T Operations: john.stankey@att.com

Numerous readers did so and forwarded to us AT&T’s response (thank you everyone!) each of which stated:

Thank you for your recent email AT&T . Tethering the iPhone is a priority for us and we are working hard to make it available as soon as possible. As you might imagine, we want to make sure that we deliver a quality customer experience from the start.

We don’t have details yet but will be sure to make a news announcement when tethering becomes available.

Thanks again for your feedback. We appreciate you taking the time to write.

MacDailyNews Take: Priority? AT&T began promising it in 2008! Some “priority.” And, ASAP? Seriously? Forgive us if we decline to hold our collective breath.
