Internet is the backbone of our fast-paced world, the connectivity to our work and family.
Reliance of humans on the Internet cannot be overemphasized. But what happens when you are away from that reliable Wifi at home or work?
There’s nothing worse than working on the go or trying to access free Wifi and realizing that it is password protected. If you have a smartphone preferably an Infinix Smartphone then it’s possible to turn your phone into a portable Wi-Fi hotspot using your device’s 3G or LTE connection to access the web, a process called ‘tethering’. There is also the latest 4G network option in the case of Infinix Note 3, Zero 3, Hot 4 Pro and Zero 4 that makes browsing faster.
It’s worth remembering to check your network’s terms and conditions on tethering and hotspot and keep an eye on your data allowance as it determines your web activities. It is also easy to hit mobile data cap a lot quicker than you think, and trust Nigerian network providers, they might forget to send you a reminder or warning. Exceeding your data limit may result in an unwanted charge (Take Note).
