    Can a cell phone portable hotspot network work with
    a Roku and other devices?

    My current phone wont do that so I'd have to get a new
    one. My current ISP is having trouble getting internet to
    work right so I'm looking for a better setup. Internet went
    out for seven days and now keeps having problems.

    Data over cellular is either capped or very expensive. Do you have LTE in
    your area?

    You need to research the plan carefully. Some carriers treat hotspot and
    tethering differently. I would be more inclined to suggest tethering since
    you may find the best location for the phone is not in a great location for
    the TV.
