Your phone and PC are able to share a single internet connection.   In many cases, only one internet cable runs to each desktop and it is not practical to run a second cable.

The  downside to this configuration is an additional cable running into the phone, and a brief loss of internet to the PC if the phone needs to rebooted for any reason.
