Using your Smartphone via Tethering when it is connected to a WiFi, means you are not sharing your mobile data. It will consume the speed and data from that WiFi network your mobile is connected.
What is Tethering & Portable Hotspot?Before going to start the process, let's understand what is a tethering & portable hotspot. Tethering is an option that whenever you turn it ON, at that moment it will start to share your active data with others. Just like an internet router, when you turn on the Hotspot of your mobile, it will create a wireless network which can be used by other users in a sufficient range and your data limit will be deducted for the usage.
Where on Hotspot you have to share your own mobile data but on Tethering, you can share internet data from the active path for that phone even without using mobile data if you wish to.
