Frequently Asked Questions

A hotspot allows you to connect wi-fi-enabled devices to the internet. The device is portable so you can connect from almost anywhere: at home, on the bus, in the park and more.

Use the hotspot to connect up to 10 wi-fi devices simultaneously.

Internet is provided by T-Mobile's network and not the Library's network. Use of the hotspot is subject to T-Mobile's Acceptable Use Policy, Privacy Policy, and Terms of Use, all of which are available at T-Mobile's website.

SLCL is not responsible for any files, data, or personal information accessed/transmitted using the hotspot.

The hotspot program is an opt-in service, and so the ISP is not bound to the Library's patron privacy policies. SLCL does not have access to or collect specific usage data. The Library does not provide patron information to the service provider. The only data the Library collects is (a) the total amount of data transmitted and received by each device during a billing cycle, (b) anonymous circulation data related to checkouts of the hotspot devices.
