Mobile Phone Hot Spot Question

(I live in the jungle of Fiji)

How come when I hot spot off my cell phone I get pretty good internet on my iPad, but on the same cell phone, the data reception is really bad?

You have a Samsung phone of some description, right? I'd guess what's probably happening is that the speed is the same but the phone is just rendering the pages slower.

You can download the Speedtest app by Ookla on both and see if the speeds are similar.

I haven't done speed checks any time recently, but I have experienced the same phenomenon in the past. Amazingly, my tethered speed tests showed much faster data speeds than on the originating device.
