If you're a very light user, please note that adding the Mobile Browser feature to your service does not cover using your phone as a modem (tethering). To ensure you don't pay more than you need to, we recommend that you add a bundle that includes data to your current voice plan.
If you're a heavier user, a better solution for you is a Turbo Stick, which will give your laptop wireless Internet access, while keeping your mobile phone or smartphone free for calls. Our Turbo Sticks plug into your laptop's USB port and give you a reliable high speed mobile Internet connection - no cables required. Plus, our Mobile Internet Flex plan adjusts according to your usage, so you always get the best rate possible.
1Tethering is available for postpaid rate plans only.
