@Yeahha: thank you for the very useful post! For further clarification, US Cellular does allow Mobile and/or WiFi Hotspot usage and Tethering with the Data Plus packages. You are already paying for the 5G of data usage, so why not use it with your laptop, and other devices. It is legal to do so. The risk that you run is going over the 5G limit of the Data Plus plan. You will pay dearly for the overage. Of course USCC recommends that you sign up for the $10 plan to get an additional 5G per month. I am occasionally in "Timbuktu" and happy to know that it is legal to use the Mobile Hotspot/Tether feature. Thank you USCC.
