Sharing Internet ConnectionIt might be very cool having a Smart (or Globe) Pocket Wi-Fi so that you can share your internet connection with your friends and family.

Why You Might Still Need a Pocket Wi-Fi...
Your laptop isn’t very portable like a Pocket Wi-Fi. You can’t carry it around in your pocket unlike a ‘Pocket Wi-Fi’.
If you choose using your phone, check if it has HSPA+ capability. A mobile internet connection lesser than that is too slow to share. Furthermore, it will also drain your phone’s battery quickly.
Will You Opt for a Pocket Wi-Fi?If you want a portable Wi-Fi hotspot that you can rely on 24 hours a day, you should use a Pocket Wi-Fi.
However, if you just want a Wi-Fi hotspot when you need it, you can save a lot by using your laptop or smartphone. It will even make you look cool!
