Spectrum Mobile Hotspot Plans & How to Enable it

spectrum mobile hotspot tethering

Not many networks across states of the United States provide data sharing or mobile hotspot services. The case is the same with MVNOs and other mobile operators in the United States. This is for the reason that three top networks in the USA don't allow this and MVNO has no choice other than to accept the terms said by the original network provider. There are only limited MVNOs that allow tethering, and one such operator is Spectrum Mobile.

If you want Verizon speed at the lowest price then you can consider going with Spectrum Mobile which allows you to save 40% on monthly expenses.

We go through the following topics in this article -

Spectrum Mobile Hotspot:

All the mobile data plans include a hotspot feature without any extra price. Wow! That's simply amazing and one of the main reasons why you should go with Spectrum Mobile, but sadly it has one limitation it is available for only Spectrum Internet customers.

So here are the Spectrum hotspot plans -

Spectrum Shared Mobile Data Plan:

We have seen Total Wireless tethering plans, Bluegrass hotspot prices & Mint hotspot plans but Spectrum Mobile's $14 plan offers the cheapest plan overall allowing you to share data with up to 10 lines. Note that this mobile data can't be shared other than these 10 line users who are listed on the subscribed Spectrum account.

With this plan, each line is allocated 1 GB and each additional 1 GB of data which is shared between all the lines on this account. Each 1 GB extra data costs $14 and once it's over, another GB has added automatically.
