Unlike tethering your phone, when you use a mobile hotspot you can connect as many as ten devices without it impairing your connectivity. You will also get a better connection because a mobile hotspot has a bigger antenna than your mobile phone.
You can keep your phone with you at all times, rather than having to leave it with your devices which need to maintain Internet connections. This means you will always be available for calls and messages even when you’re online.
Your friends and family are free to use your mobile hotspot device. You can connect to game consoles, laptops, and tablets all at the same time.
Because you’re not using the battery on your phone, it will keep its charge longer. When fully charged, a mobile hotspot will give you several hours of uninterrupted connectivity.
