According to FierceBroadbandWireless and Techdirt, Sprint has killed their unlimited mobile hotspot and tethering plans.  They are now capped at 5GB per month and include a $0.05 per megabyte overage charge.  The message that Sprint sent said:
Starting in June 2012, and effective on your next bill, your phone or tablet's on-network Mobile Hotspot data allowance will be limited to 5 GB," said the email, which noted that customers' invoices in May or June included a message about the timing of this change.
