Best way to find out is to find a few and try them.

Re: Hotspot

Not sure I get you. I'm using a hotspot on a Galaxy Note and the speed is much lower than on the actual. Almost unusable.

Re: Hotspot

When you say Hotspot do you mean a VM supplied public Wi-Fi signal available to VM customers or something else ?

Run a speed test on your phone using your mobile data then try tethering a device to the mobile and run another speed test and see how you get on.

Re: Hotspot

depends on the quaity of the phone and connections. if you are only connecting using 2.4ghz you will be limited to the speed that wifi can support
