Our top plan
- Is pocket WiFi a hotspot? Collapsed link
If you have a portable WiFi device, it can effectively act as a portable WiFi hotspot. Typically, these 4G pocket hotspots require a SIM card to activate. This ensures you have a mobile internet connection similar to your smartphone (only a lot stronger and more reliable in areas of poor service). Your portable WiFi device also creates a sharable broadband connection capable of being spread among 10 or more users at once.
- Is the Alcatel Pocket Hotspot reliable? Collapsed link
Yes, the Alcatel PHS is a reliable device that provides stable 4G connections in most places where 4G is available. This connection can also support upwards of 10 devices at once.

It's easy to set up your personal hotspot on an Alcatel device. You just need a SIM card and a charged device. Once your device is on, you can set up a secure WPS connection with your smartphone, tablet or laptop within minutes.
