Yes, this provides a wifi connection to any device that accepts wifi. It also uses the Verizon 3G network.
However, two things to remember: 1) it operates at 3G speeds only ...your smartphone may or may not have 4G, and 2) you may being paying less for data on your smartphone plan. I say this because if you plan on doing a lot of activities that are bandwidth hogs such as video or audio streaming and transferring large files, etc. then you could be going through quite a few service cards to keep this device powered which could get expensive.
As I've posted previously, I believe this device is ideally suited for those who want convenience of having their own internet with them while on the go to use their laptops, tablets, iPads, etc. and not having to worry about finding a public wifi for things such as checking e-mail, light web surfing, light social media use, transferring small files, etc. Heavy internet usage will get expensive with this device.
Maybe a better alternative would be to put your home internet service on a router?
