Internet data - tethering

Hi! Yesterday I joined Prepay sim only plan.
My problem: can I utilise the phone's Hotspot to work in my laptop?
I have no other access to internet. I understand my Prepay plan gives me 60GB of Data.
What types of difficulties I shall face if I use the phone's hotspot?
Thanks!

If your not using too much data it should be fine.
Also make sure to define the WiFi network as a metered one on your laptop

Technically using hotspot is not supported by 3.
What phone are you using?
