AT&T is expanding its tethering option with some extra data and bringing it in line with a new Mobile Hotspot app.

The Hotspot app will allow users to connect "multiple" wireless devices to AT&T's network. Often times, wireless carriers impose a limit on connected devices with offers such as this, but there's no mention of a cap so far.

Set to coincide with the in-store launch of the HTC Inspire 4G, the Mobile Hotspot app will be ready for "select smartphone customers" on February 13. It will be bundled with the AT&T Data Pro plan, which consists of 4GB of data making for a grand total of $45 per month.

AT&T subscribers that already have tethering (and thus the AT&T Data Pro plan) will automatically get 2GB of extra data service on this date as well.
