Wifi tethering keeps dropping clients off

I share my mobiledata to my kidds while off town. With my old Galaxy S5 I used to flip the wifi hotspot on on friday and turn it off on sunday - no problems ever. Now with my Nokia 7 plus (ta-1046) the hotspot drops connected clients off after random period of time. The hotspot doesn't turn off but suddently clients just can't connect to the internet. I have to turn tethering off and on again to re-establish functionality. I have the same sim and a same unlimited data plan as before. I suspect there's a problem with hotspot service's memory management because if I use my phone while tethering the hotspot drops after 15 to 30 mins. If I leave my phone alone the hotspot might work for hours before any drop outs. Using 8.1.0 and June patch. Can someone confirm the same behaviour?
