Can I use a mobile hotspot as my home internet?

Yes, using your phone as a mobile hotspot for home internet is an option. Cellphone providers offer different speeds and data plans for mobile hotspots. Not all cellphone plans allow you to create a mobile hotspot, and some providers charge extra for it. When looking into using your phone as a hot spot you should look at the total data limit. It would be a good idea if you are worried about being charged for accidental overage fees to get an unlimited plan. Even if your plan is unlimited though, the total data limit is different from the hotspot data limit. It is also good to check out the hotspot data limit. When this monthly data limit is met your hotspot data will be deprioritized to slower data speeds. This still gives you the ability to check emails, and surf the web, but there isn’t much data for anything else. This is where knowing the slow speed is for your mobile hotspot because it is possible that it is too slow to surf the web or anything else. There are positives for using a mobile hotspot as your home internet, like it eliminates the need for a home internet plan for some low-data use households. It does have some negatives though, like it can use a lot of data if you aren’t careful with what you are doing with it. It might be worth it for you to look into the different options and see what would be good for you.
