They do NOT run from a cell phone or without a subscribed broadband line. You subscribe to DSL phone line connection, or a cable connection. The wireless router connects to that, and then all your machines connect to the router.

You will need a hotspot device. The devices are smaller then phones and all you do is turn them on. They have a password wrote on the back all you do is connect to it using your wireless device with the password they give you.
You need a internet plan to use them.expect to pay $50 for the device and another $50 a month for the data. Depend on what carrier you decide to go with of course but these are the basics you need.
T-Mobile, Verizon seems all the big companies offer them.
