Mobile Hotspot Basics
What is a mobile hotspot, and how does it work?
A mobile hotspot is a feature that allows you to create a portable Wi-Fi network using your smartphone or other compatible devices. It works by utilizing your device’s cellular data connection to provide internet access to other devices in its surrounding area, such as laptops, tablets, or other Wi-Fi-enabled devices.
We now offer hotspot services at the incredible price of $9.99 for an entire year or 99 cents monthly. You can find further information on our website or by contacting our customer service team.
