About tethering

Using your phone to connect a laptop or tablet to the internet is called tethering.

It's a bit like using mobile broadband, but instead of a dongle you connect your phone to a laptop or WiFi tablet using Bluetooth, a USB cable, or portable WiFi hotspot.

You can only tether on some 3G and 4G devices, such as Android phones and iPhones.
