Tethering means that you can use your mobile data to create a WiFi network that nearby devices can use.
Honest has unrestricted hotspot in the UK, which means that you can use as much of your data plan as you like to tether other devices to your mobile data. There are no extra charges for using hotspot.
Please note that we don't currently support hotspot/tethering on iPads or when you're outside the UK on an iPhone
