Sprint Galaxy Note 4/Note Edge And You Want To Enable WiFi Tethering

As long as there is internet connectivity, a smartphone is capable of helping people connect to the world.  Smartphones can now serve almost all a person’s computer needs including e-mails, social media website participation and watching videos.

Nowadays, not only can a smartphone connect to the internet, but it can also help other devices connect to the internet.  Carriers in various countries have LTE or 3G plans which can be faster than ordinary internet connections.  It is possible to use the data plan on your smartphone with other devices by using WiFi tethering.
