got a broadband prob at the moment so trying to use phones as internet access points. ive used mine before for tethering on giffgaff, but it doesnt seem to be working as it did before. itll get google, but no other websites for some strange reason. i made it into a wifi hotspot instead and that works fine, but im limited to 1Gb data.
so...... ive looked at getting through the wifes '3' account. hers is unlimited data, but no tethering allowed. so i tried the wifi hotspot option and its working. my question is..... why is it working? i understand the difference between tethering and wifi hotspot but i cant understand how wifi hotspot is allowed but not tethering. surely its all the same data being used?
