Mobile Hotspot Lending at Graham Public Library
We hope you enjoy this service!
What’s a mobile hotspot?
It’s a device that turns a cellular data connection into a Wi-Fi connection. It allows you to connect your smartphone, computer, or tablet to a Wi-Fi network.
Graham Public Library’s mobile hotspots run on the T-Mobile Sprint cellular service, therefore, the connection depends on the T-Mobile Sprint coverage area.
Wi-Fi is a wireless networking technology that allows devices to interface with the Internet.
Why use a mobile hotspot?
~if you do not have Wi-Fi at home
~if your at-home Wi-Fi or broadband connection is unreliable or slow
~if you want to access Wi-Fi while traveling (while still within the T-Mobile Sprint coverage area)
~if you are in a remote location without Wi-Fi (but are still within the T-Mobile Sprint coverage area)
~your phone’s data is limited
Each time you check out a hotspot, you will need to sign a User Agreement (copies are available at the library).
