How hotspots work

When it comes to mobile hotspot service, you select and pay for your plan just like you would for any Straight Talk mobile service plan. The difference here, however, is that you’re not using the hotspot as a device – the hotspot simply broadcasts the service you’ll be using. So, once you have the hotspot set up, you can tether a variety of devices to it, from smartphones and tablets to computers, for convenient access to the World Wide Web wherever the hotspot receives coverage – simple as that.

Simply add the device to your cart on our website, choose your compatible service option and place your order – soon enough, you’ll be browsing on the go.
