Mobile Hotspot lets you share your Verizon Wireless network connection with other devices, so they can access the internet. Devices can connect to your Mobile Hotspot using Wi-Fi. While devices are connected, you'll be charged for any data they use according to your monthly data plan.
Many smartphones and tablets have a built-in Mobile Hotspot feature that you can access in Settings or the App menu. The feature may have a different name on your device, like Personal Hotspot (iOS), Internet Sharing (Windows®) or Portable Wi-Fi Hotspot (Google™ Nexus devices), but they do the same thing.
We also carry Jetpack devices that are strictly mobile hotspots. Visit our Mobile Hotspot shopping page to see which ones are available today or go to our Verizon Jetpack FAQs to learn more.
