Well, don't you have WiFi at home that uses your fixed line? Just connect to that and phone will use your home unlimited internet.

What phone do you have that you wish to use as the wifi hot spot?

 

The options are usb Connection or a wireless one.

 

Other than that you could buy another device without restrictions?

ISPs charging extra for tethering is just another [censored] way that they can nickel and dime you for more money.  I'd say that they've noticed you tethering away when you haven't added it to your plan, and have likely blocked it. Some carriers even block you from installing tethering apps from the Play Store and I wouldn't put it past them to "helpfully" add the tethering service to your plan automatically.

Charging extra for something built into a phone's hardware is just silly in today's day and age.

You would have to disable tethering provisioning and possibly though not always necessary, use a vpn to bypass certain other checks at the carrier level..

If its a Android device, you would need a rooted device or a custom rom to achieve this. Some custom roms have it disabled by default.

Bypassing tethering provisioning is however considered as violating your service agreement and service can be suspended, though it is rare as far as I can tell.

I don't understand the problem. The mobile device will have either one or two APN's defined.

 

If your device is the problem, pull the sim card out and put it in a new device that is NOT tied to the carrier. 

https://www.t-mobile.com/support/devices/not-sold-by-t-mobile/byod-t-mobile-data-and-apn-settings

 

note this part:

APN: Fast.t-mobile.com (for LTE devices) or epc.tmobile.com (for non-LTE devices)

 

If you get unlimited LTE data, the APN should be fast.t-mobile.com otherwise it should be epc.tmobile.com

Not sure if you already know this or not, but T-Mobile has giving 20GB more hotspot/tethering to its customers, so you can use hotspot until you figure out a way to tether data.

Yeah sure. Here T-mobile charges $10 for 2GB and no additional bandwith.
