It's not a function of what Koodo plan you're on as long as you have data enabled. If your phone supports it, you can use it as a mobile hot spot.

A warning though, using a phone as a hot spot for desktop or laptop computers is a good way to chew thru data very quickly. Most internet sites recognize when you are accessing from a mobile device and will send out slimmed-down versions of pages and images to save bandwidth. Not the same story at all if you access from a normally land-bound device.

My landline was down for a half day last year, and just half an hour total of brief tethering from my desktop cost 30 MB of data. Tab may do somewhat better.

You may need to edit your apn settings to include 'dun' in the Apn Type
