Can my mobile be used as Wi-Fi hotspot? I always heard that latest smartphones can be used to share internet connection. What kind of mobile connection is required? Can anyone who tried it, tell me how it is in terms of connection quality? How many devices can be hooked up without losing speed?

It is possible to share internet over the phone and use your phone as a hot spot. I have tried it before and it works just fine. Your data plan works however it consumes more data bundles considering more than one user is using your internet. The speed is pretty okay for at least four users. The connection is strong for up to a distance of 10 meters.

The majority of the newer Smartphones nowadays support Wi-Fi hotspot. With this feature, you can use your Smartphone as an extension to your Wi-Fi network. You can connect your phone to your Wi-Fi then activate the hotspot feature on your phone to create a new Wi-Fi hotspot.

This is very useful when you want to share Wi-Fi connection to your friends without allowing them to connect directly to your Wi-Fi network. One example of a Smartphone with hotspot support is the HTC One M9. The HTC One M9 is a 4G Smartphone operating on 2G, 3G, and 4G network bands using GSM, CDMA, HSPA, EVDO, and LTE technologies.
