Do a quick search on tethering and you will see how to do it. Just be aware that mobile data is very expensive compared to most other solutions.

Most web sites are organized to slim down the data flow to accommodate the smaller screen, etc of a handheld device automatically. If you use your laptop to connect thru your phone, you may well bypass that safety valve and consume data at a much higher rate.
