Check hotspot settings for it.

As far as I know limiting number of connections connected to hotspot is possible.

Also in samsung you can set data limit and time limit (after device get connected), it will automatically get restrict data when limit get reached.

You will have to live with it. That's how it works inΒ brotherhood.Β

If rooted there's an easy solution. Otherwise in some stock ROMs there's an option to limit speeds but I have never tried it so unsure if it works or not.

Edit: If the ROM includes the option to 'share VPN over hotspot" (available in full featured custom ROMs but not in minimal ones like LineageOS or stock ROMs like MIUI, again can be enabled with root) then there's a possibility that download speeds can be limited even if root isn't available.Β

Throttling IS possible in the recent phones (or those running Android 13 or latter versions) via the 'developer options' menu.

β€Ž β€β€β€Žβ€β€β€Ž β€β€β€£β€Ž β€β€β€Žβ€β€β€Ž and within it, there is a 'Networking' tab/section

β€Ž β€β€β€Žβ€β€β€Ž β€β€β€£β€Ž β€β€β€Žβ€β€β€Ž ‏‏under 'Networking', there is an option for configuring the 'Network download rate limit'.

Or better still, if one a spare device you can put a BSNL SIM, then create hotspot with thatπŸ˜† .

Other way to irritate them is to say that some antenna or other issue in phone, so instead of hotspot
use 'bluetooth tethering'.

Keep taking calls, move far from their device or somehow ensure that bluetooth connection is choppy.

The above requires kernel level changes. The feature is available in A13 based MIUI but doesn't seem to work. Didn't work in a device running AOSP based custom ROM as well but doesn't matter since root is available. Maybe it only works in devices that were launched with A13+.Β
