Straighttalk hotspot

I live in a no-man's land where there is currently no broadband and doesn't seem to be at any point in the near future. I use the mobile hotspot on my phone for my internet (using the 10gb unlimited plan). My problem is I can't send a print job to the printer while my laptop is connected. It doesn't seem like more than one device can be used at a time. Could a standalone hotspot device be used as a hub (using my 10gb of metered data) that would allow me to use the laptop and printer simultaneously?

Hi David. Which phone are you using? I remember doing it to a PC/laptop but not sure how with printer.
