Can I buy some type of hot spot for my kids to do online gaming? They play PlayStation 4 online. But can't right now.

Hi Melissa,

Unfortunately we don't have this as an option. Many plans allow for a buy more data option should you run out of data.

Sadly I live in a area I cant get any good internet to game with.. What I did was buy a Metro pcs phone that has unlimited data. u get 22gb before lower speeds just for ur self.. then u get 8gb of hotspot data.. .. if u have the free zone.. Install games and updates at that time.. use the 4glte that gives 50-75ping *Great for any online game* and the best part is the plan isn't much . for extra data its 5$ a gig not 10 or 15 like all the rest... or I think sprint has 10gb hot spot.. hope it helps best thing ive found so far

well for me i can game onto my ps4 and xbox one just fine :3 also play my 3ds onto pokemon battles via wifi and also i can play my ps3 online just fine also my xbox 360 just fine also my wii u just fine also :3 (i have about... 2 new 3ds xl and 1 2ds) also i have my ipad and my laptop and also my computer also imma using right now as we type. and imma just fine :3 BUT!!! gaming onto the ps4 can take alotta gbs online... so maybe like 1 hour or maybe like COD takes alotta data and stuff... but racing games are just fine but also GTA V MIGHT take alotta data also D: but yeah i just limit of what i use when i go online and play :3 (which is mostly pokemon battles onto my 3ds and 2ds also :3 ) but yeah you can ALWAYS buy more data :3 also there is like 10gbs for like 95$ but also its much cheaper buying it into bulk instead of buying one gbs for 10 dollars :3 or something like that :3 (youll have go to check it out cant remember the deals D: ) BUT!!! also keep in mind that they wont charge you until your next bill is ready... so say for an example your bill is like 100$ each month... if ya guys the 10gbs one which is 95$ then your next month bill will be about... 195$ if ya bought it at the 2nd week of your service.... thats for an example though :3
