Is a smartphone hotspot adequate to do work on a laptop in a location with only data coverage?
jackson 17 weeks ago
I’m going on vacation in a few days, but I have work that needs to be done on a daily basis. Unfortunately, where I am going shows only data coverage from Sprint, my carrier. Not 3G, just "data". I’ve used my phone as a hotspot with a 3G connection and that was acceptable, albeit pretty slow. I assume a “data” network connection is going to be even slower. Will it be fast enough to do some light online research and exchanging documents, or am I going to be out of luck?
