It's wifi only. But you can always create a hotspot on your phone and share the internet.

According to the official tech specs :

  • Bluetooth 5.0 (support for controllers, accessories and audio)
  • Dual-band Wi-Fi radio, 2.4GHz and 5GHz, 2 x 2 MIMO, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/ac

With the dock, you will have additional access to an ethernetport, but that's probably not "truly take it on the go"'esque.

Luckily most online games don't take a ton of bandwidth as long as you already have them downloaded. Its typically anywhere from 30mb-150mb an hour depending on the game.
