What is a Hotspot
In very simple terms, the term ‘hotspot’ itself refers to a physical location with a large range of signal enabled for internet access using Wi-Fi, this can allow other devices connected to it to also access the internet and therefore be used for browsing the web or doing any other sort of work.
Several public places also use this technique to allow free Wi-Fi access for people, although most of them might generally be too slow for a person to really be able to use fluently unless the place is relatively fine.
This is also the reason for this article being about how to turn on hotspot on iPhone 11. You can make your own iPhone into a hotspot for other devices to connect to and be able to access the internet.
What is a Mobile Hotspot
A mobile hotspot is exactly what it says, a hotspot that is also mobile, a device with the signal range that can be carried anywhere and hence allow other devices to connect to it. The difference between a normal hotspot and a mobile hotspot is thin but visible.
Unlike a hotspot which is a physical location with signal range made specifically for internet access, they have the advantage of being present in various locations, although the speed may depend entirely on what kind of internet the hotspot is using.
A mobile hotspot, on the other is technically a portable signal range that allows internet access in places that you wouldn’t find otherwise on locations that have no physical hotspot. A mobile hotspot allows you to connect any of your devices to internet without connecting to a Wi-Fi router.
A mobile hotspot allows one to access Wi-Fi on devices that otherwise are unable to have an access to it.
This still faces the same issue as the physical Hotspot, which is the fact that the Wi-Fi’s speed will be dramatically reduced when being used on another device, such as using an iPhone’s Wi-Fi personal hotspot to connect your Mac laptops with.
Knowing about how to turn on hotspot on iPhone 11 can be very helpful when you are stuck in a dire situation without your trusty router Wi-Fi, just make sure that your mobile data itself is preserved and is fast enough to run on your computer.
