Mobile Hotspot is a tethering feature available for $10 a month that allows you to use your Cricket smartphone as a portable wireless access point. You can tether your cell phone to a laptop, tablet, or other connected device using wireless LAN (Wi-Fi) or with a physical connection, such as a USB cable. High-speed data used while connected to Mobile Hotspot counts toward plan data allowance. Mobile Hotspot feature requires an eligible phone and qualifying rate plan. Mobile Hotspot is available to new and existing Cricket customers on our Unlimited plans, plus select grandfathered plans. If you have an Unlimited plan, you'll get 10 GB of Mobile Hotspot data usage per month; after 10GB of Mobile Hotspot data usage, tethering speeds are slowed to 128 Kbps for the rest of the billing cycle.
