Tethering and AppWorld

I am planning to use the tehreing option with my playbook when I'm an not near a WiFi network. I noticed that appworld will not connect when connected via Tethering. I currently have a Blackberry Curve 8900, 2G speeds, not super quick but oddly enough the Playbook pulls up pages much faster via tethering to my phone than my phone pulls up web pages, go figure.


I am planning to get the New Blackberry Bold Touch when it comes out and use the 4G speeds through tethering as well, but would like Appworld to be able to connect. Is this just an oddity or is there a minimal connection speed that is expected with Appworld?


Connecting via tethering works great, it woudl be nice not to have to acknowldge the fee potential everytime.
