GTIGLOBAL HotSpot

Welcome to your new UC Mobile Service:

Mobile Hotspot (Data Tethering) is now fully supported within the GTIGlobal Service and can be enabled for any subscriber.
Mobile Hotspot will allow any mobile device which supports it to act as a Mobile Hotspot so that other devices can be tethered to it via Bluetooth, Wi-fi or USB cable and use the data allowance from that users data bundle
Tethered devices such as Laptops or tablets can use significant amounts of data in short periods of time, so there is a risk of the data allowance being exceeded which will incur bundle overage charges. For this reason, the Data Tethering service is disabled by default, but can be enabled on a per subscriber basis either when provisioning the subscriber has completed or any time thereafter. Mobile Hotspot can be activated via Control Panel

Please follow the following simple steps to ensure that your service configuration is optimized:
