Re: Tethering

Hello @sheilalyn59,


We can definitely answer that question for you. First things first, you'll need a compatible wireless device. Most of our smartphones and tablets work as mobile hotspots. A mobile hotspot provides a secure internet connection for other devices through Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or a USB cable. You will also need a Compatible data plan that includes personal mobile hotspot use. If you already meet both of those requirements, you can Learn how to set up a mobile hotspot here. Let us know if this helps.
