1. A method for communication of Wireless Wide Area Network (WWAN) broadcast information in a wireless communication network, the method comprising:
controlling, by a processing device,
receiving at a client device a first WWAN broadcast information message, over a communication connection, from a hotspot device, and
transmitting, to the hotspot device over the communication connection, a second WWAN broadcast information message, responsive to the first WWAN broadcast information message,
wherein the first and second WWAN broadcast information messages indicate first and second WWAN capabilities respectively of the client device and the hotspot device, and
in which the communication connection is a Short Range Wireless Link (SRWL) or a wired connection.
