Just got my Nexus 5 and purchased a FIDO LTE sim. Everything seems to work great except for hotspot. I tried to hotspot my laptop to internet via Nexus 5. I could establish a WiFi connection, but the tablet could not access the internet. I used to have a Sony Ericsson and hotspot always worked.
I tried calling Fido and Google support, but going nowhere.
I'm a prepaid customer. Do I need Fido to enable the hotspot (tether) for my account? Is there such a restriction?

Solved! Go to Solution.
Since customer paid for their data on a prepaid account, why is tethering not allowed? The data will stop when the prepaid amount expired? I think the function is needed by many of us. I am a Fido prepaid customer.
