How to share 4G or mobile internet with another device

It’s the light that goes out, the intermittent wi-fi signal, a trip or the bill you forgot to pay. Going without internet on your computer, tablet or cell phone takes anyone out of their minds. With that in mind, we show you step-by-step how you can share the internet from your mobile phone and use it on your devices or on a friend’s mobile phone that doesn’t have mobile internet.

And believe me, it’s pretty easy. Just make sure first of all that your 4G internet is enabled.
