Connection of a mobile device with other devices can be done over wireless LAN (Wi-Fi), over Bluetooth or by physical connection using a cable, for example through USB. The Hotspot feature lets you share your mobile device’s data connection with other devices by turning your device into a wireless access point other Wi-Fi enabled devices can connect to. You can connect multiple devices via Wi-Fi. Using your mobile device.
Note: Use of the feature for long duration will cause significant loss of battery life. It is recommended to carry a battery powerbank or have an additional source of power when using this feature.
Broadband speeds are measured in ‘megabits per second’, often shortened to Mb Mbits p/s or Mbps. Bits are tiny units of data, with a megabit representing a million of them. The higher the number of Mbps (megabits per second) you have, the speedier your online activity should be. A high number should mean that downloads complete more quickly, webpages load faster, streaming of music or videos begins more rapidly and any video calls or online games played should display smoothly.
