Specs: Android, Amd quad core 4.8ghz 8gb ddr3
In short i want to use a phone to connect 10 or 20 computers through tethering because the connection through verison is a lot faster than anything i could get (without selling my liver) for my home because of where i live. The only issue is i dont know how i would test to see if this is going to work or not. Thanks for the response, and for tolerating my (dumb) questions. The phone i plan on using is the samsung galaxy j36v

Depends on your Phone data plan. What is the bandwidth/speed you pay for?
10 users will have to share that bandwidth.
Check how much clients your phone can handle. I think 5-10 is possible but 20???
Additional will be how fast your phone can handle this amount of users.

There are Mobile-hotshot available from Verizon:

Are you talking about using a cell phone's hotspot to connect computers to the Internet? If so, most if not all cell phones/ MiFi hotspots devices only allow a certain amount of devices to connect to them. You would need several phones or MiFi hotspots for 20 computers. Also with that many computers connected to one phone or hotspot, it's going to be painfully slow.

I couldn't find the number of connections that phone would allow but I've had 4 Samsung Galaxy phones and all of them would allow up to 5 connections. I'm assuming that model would be the same so you would need 4 of those for 20 computers.

Have you looked into getting Internet through Dish TV or Direct TV which use Satelite communications instead of running wires to your house?

The bottleneck will still be your phone, and your PC used as a router.

Agreed, there is no way your going to run an Internet connection from 1 phone to 10 or 20 computers and have any sort of usable bandwidth.
