Wifi hotspot not available with MBB SIM.

Postby ohnjay on Tue Sep 15, 2015 12:50 pm

Just received Exetel mobile broadband SIM on 13G plan, installed in Samsung T535 tablet and can access internet OK.
However tablet will now not operate as wifi hotspot. SIM from another provider, also on Optus network, works fine as hotspot.
Bluetooth hotspot works, but some devices I have can't connect this way.

Is this an intentional restriction?

PM received. Looking at the provisioning status of your service, it appears that it is capable of creating a wifi hotspot.

I will however double check the provisioning status and get back to you. Your reference number : 9444742

I have checked this and confirm that there are no restrictions applied to this and that you should be able to use this as a wifi hotspot given that it has the capability of working as one.

I do not see any issues that could be causing this situation.
