What is a Mobile Hotspot? 

Mobile hotspots allow access to the internet for devices such as smartphones, tablets and laptops.

The libraries Mobile Hotspots use the Bell cellular network - service is dependent on the availability of this network in your area.

Hotspots have 3.66 Gig of data per 2 week period. There is no daily cap so users are encouraged to check their data usage by logging on to the Sentinel website. When the 3.66 gig has been reached the hotspot will no longer access the internet.

Internet will be suspended the day after the Hotspot is due to be returned.

Internet service for these devices is available in Ontario only.
