Does Fizz Mobile allow TETHERING to another device?

Does Fizz Mobile allow someone with a data plan, to TETHER their phone to a laptop ,or tablet, and use their allotted data to browse the internet?

If so, what restrictions, IF ANY, does Fizz impose on tethering?

Also, will tethering to a laptop drastically reduce the download, and upload speed of the internet, that is normally attained from browsing the internet directly from your phone?

Looks like there is throttling? I am in TMR, Montreal with all four bars on an iphone and LTE.

I don't think there are any specific restrictions on this.

Hi TD.,

Do you experience any decreased download speeds when you tether to your laptop?

Thanks

I've used the mobile hotspot on my phone many times with any issues.

I haven't tried tethering to a laptop. I can try when I get home tonight.

Hi everyone,

If someone can run a quick speed test while tethering to a laptop, as Sebastian suggested, that would be very helpful.

Thanks
