It's identified differently and billed at the digression of the carrier/rate plan.

Example, I was on an old legacy unlimited data plan with Telus, but tethering was still billed per mb.

I switched to a 6gb plan and tetherin is included. I'm pretty sure all BB plans include tethering. The fine print on their site suggests so.

Does teathering just use the BB dataplan data allotment?  or is it
identified as such and biloled differently?

Yet on one laptop modem-manager refused the dbus calls from blueman. I'm guessing this is probably caused by something legacy, left behind after upgrading to 10.10. I've tried adjusting permissions and the policy for modem-manager with no luck... I suppose I should test this off a live cd to be certain if it's config related.
