Create a personal hotspot on your mobile phone
As part of our Technology Refresh Programme the number of 4G contracts we use will be reduced. If you already have a 4G connection on a device and a council iPhone then your new laptop will have a wifi connection only, you can still use a 4G connection by creating a personal hotspot on your phone.
If you are in a council office you should always connect to the network via a cable. If you are out of the office you should use WI-FI wherever possible. You should only use tethering to your mobile phone when no other connectivity options are available. The priority should be:
1. Corporate - Wired to the network (by Ethernet cable)
2. Corporate WiFi
3. Home Broadband
4. Guest WiFi
