Can a 4G MiFi device be used "as-needed" month-to-month?

Most of the time I do not need MiFi access as i have WiFi almost everywhere I go, but occasionally while travelling it would be nice to have a 4G hotspot while travelling.

If I buy a 4G hot spot device, can I activate and deactivate as-needed?  Will this have any effect on my current account?
