Tether your phone.

So you’ve signed up for an expensive all-you-can-eat data plan, yet when you try to tether your laptop to your phone to use that 4G connection you paid a premium for, you are stymied.

If you are using your laptop for business, wouldn’t it be smarter to stay on a 4G network rather than connecting to an open Wi-Fi one? On iPhone, tethering is a no-go.
