is it true that 4g or a mobile hotspot uses more data i am ask because i just bought a jetpack and have only used it a few time and so far i half all ready used 2 gb i us to barly use 1 gb and the only reason i can think was i did dowload a 1gb file but other that i dont streat video or music
Your moble hotspots act like any other internet connection. The only difference is that VZW monitors and enforces how much data you consume while you are connected to it. That means you need to be careful and pay attention to how much data you are using on a regular basis. If you can manage to create good data habits for yourself you should be able to stay within your data cap.
Example of Good Data Habbits:
if you normally use 1 gb, and this month you downloaded a 1 gb file in one shot, then it stands to reason that this month you would use 2 gb's. what am i missing here? did you hit 2 gb's in a week and typically hit 1 in a month? yes, though, it's easier to consume more data on 4g than 3g. and follow ALL of john's tips.
