How do they work?
Hotspots tap into 3G and 4G cellular networks. Once connected to a cellular data connection, a mobile hotspot can share that connection via WiFi with anything that connects to a WiFi network. No cellular connection? No data, which means the hotspot won’t work if you’re in a dead zone with no cellular signal.
