What do you mean? It's an add-on, it should not change anything on your account
Unsure but as soon as I added I got an automated text I no longer qualify for a promotion. Support is looking into it.

A lot of people live paycheck to paycheck, with the city being on lockdown and people can't work, they will have to cut cable, streaming subcriptions, gym,and finally, internet. This might come in handy.
Hopefully the people you are referring to are aware most ISPs have agreed to not disconnect customers who can't afford their Internet service as a result of COVID-19.

What's up with all the service providers offers free data, a PR stunt? Shouldn't everyone be at home within Wifi range? Especially with free Xfinity Wifi for all. I know some people in rural areas needs cell coverage but I think 90% of the people should have home internet already. Maybe it's good if you are a trucker.
What's up with all the people judging other people on an anonymous deals forum? I think 90% of the people probably couldn't care less about your opinion, unless maybe you're a trucker.

T-Mobile is the best—this comes in at the perfect time. We live in the foothills of Colorado and our internet here is all line of site WiFi dishes aimed at towers atop foothills miles away. With everyone working from home, those networks are failing.

I am able to do my job and my wife hers, thanks to this option from T-Mobile.

We are looking forward to the day mm wave 5G comes to our area so I can switch home internet to t-mo too!

That'll get you in trouble eventually. It doesn't change the MTU setting or TTL of the data packet, and I think there's one other thing that needs to be changed to match the phone. In addition to that, all the background traffic your computer uses will throw up some red flags, like when your Android phone is constantly pinging "time.windows.com" or the Windows Updates server, or whatever.

TL;DR- it's not hard for them to catch you doing that.
I want to use this to stream to my TV. I only have a public Wi-Fi where I am which I cannot use on my smart TV. Would this be a good use case? I have Verizon which only gives me I think 10 gigs a month of 4G hotspot.

You can try, I think Verizon would be more strict about skirting the rules, though.

I use PDAnet frequently. I used usb tether for a while but saw the same speed as wireless. I can play Geforce Now and PS Remote Play on my laptop decently with 4g connection, so pretty fast.

Netshare and PDAnet only work to tether to devices that have the netshare and PDAnet programs/apps as well. So on a Windows PC you need software. This works for most cases, but wireless tether for a game system requires either a paid Netshare app or official hotspot data.

10gb will go a long way as long as you don't download any games/updates.
Would I be able to use this to stream unlimited content to a smart TV?

Any luck?

I have a VERY grandfathered plan and I dont want to lose it.

One rep added something to my account once and it switched my plan, and it took a long time to get my old one back.

If you're on Android, just install Netshare. Free unlimited hotspot.
Does it work even if the provider does not allow hotspot

Well, in our case, Comcast SUCKS big time. There's no telling when their internet will be out. This offer from T-mobile helps. Especially during the time of a lockdown when you cannot go to a cafe during a Comcast outage.

Does anybody know how to tell how much hotspot data you've used? I don't wanna worry about going over board... or do they just stop you from using hotspot after you've used the allotment?
