 What is Hotspot?

 

             Hotspot enables other laptops or mobile devices to utilize your mobile phone as a modem to

             gain access to the Internet and mobile data.

             Note:  When other devices use your hotspot, they use data from your mobile service

                          thus additional charges may apply.

                          Hotspot can also drain your battery quickly.
