A mobile hotspot is basically a portable device that you can connect to for Internet access. For example, you have an iPhone. You can turn on mobile hotspot and you have an iPad. You can connect the iPad to the iPhone wirelessly and your iPad will have Internet access. Beware though, there is usually a data limit and this eats up data if you don't pay attention.

A mobile hotspot basically turns your phone or tablet( if it has cellular service) into a modem- router. This allows you to connect other devices to the device that you have the hotspot on. When you connect a device to the hotspot the device will use the device with the hotspot signal to allow the device you connect to have internet via wi-fi.
in other words it gives other devices internet signal.
Notice: Carriers usually imply a monthly fee with this service.
