Wi-Fi Hotspots FAQ

Need Internet at Home or on the Go?

What is a Wi-Fi Hotspot device?

    A Wi-Fi Hotspot is a device that lets you connect your other devices like laptops, smartphones, and tablets to the internet. It's portable, so you can connect to the internet almost anywhere you go!

How do I check out a Wi-Fi Hotspot?

How long do Wi-Fi Hotspots check out for?

    Just like all our other SLCC Libraries materials, Wi-Fi hotspots are free to checkout using your SLCC OneCard.
    Wi-Fi Hotspots check out for a loan period of 28 days.
    Hotspots can be renewed for an additional 28 days if no one else has placed the item on hold.

Are there any limits on the amount of data that can be streamed?

    There is a monthly data limit of 6GB on 4G LTE, after which maximum speeds will be reduced.
    The full 6GB is restored on the 21st of every month and is not based on the checkout period.
    To preserve data please turn off device when not in use.
    Unlimited media streaming is available for services such as Amazon, YouTube, HBONOW, Netflix and more.
    Visit T-Mobile's BINGE ON page for more information about all the unlimited media streaming that is available.
