WHAT IS THE MOBILE HOTSPOT LENDING PROGRAM?
The mobile hotspot lending program allows you to check out a Wi-Fi hotspot to connect to the internet from almost anywhere! A hotspot is a small wireless access point providing internet access to mobile devices such as your laptop, smartphone or tablet. Hotspots are portable, so you can connect your device to the internet almost anywhere you are, at home, on the bus or in the park. The hotspot device works in any area covered by the Sprint 3G or 4G LTE network.
