    After being thoroughly confused by this myself, I believe I found the source of the poor image quality: Your cellular service provider is re-encoding the images you load before sending them to you to save bandwidth, but trashing the quality. You should google for instructions for how to disable this with your carrier.

    This is happening for me on O2 in the UK as well - I spoke to O2 about it, and they say that there's nothing you can do - there IS a trick out there where you change your APN username (under Settings - General - Network - Cellular Data Network) from 'vertigo' to 'bypass', but unfortunately this only works for the iPhone itself - when you use 'bypass' as the username, it disables tethering.

    Very frustrating.

    I like this feature. I'd much rather have the speed than wait for ages for high resolution images to load when it's not really necessary.
