    What you’d really want to do here is something called “Tethering”. This where a computer uses the internet signal from a phone for its own use instead of a cable modem or similar “traditional ISP”.

    You’ll need to talk to your cell phone provider to see if the tethering feature is available for your phone or if your phone already has this feature available. Every cell phone provider handles this differently Also make sure to monitor your data usage if you start using tethering.
