JetPak vs. Smartphone as hotspot

I currently have an S7 and can use it as a hotspot for internet access on my laptop.  Would there be any advantage to a JetPack as a hotspot for streaming video to my laptop or TV?

Re: JetPak vs. Smartphone as hotspot
Customer Support

Hello, sosmerc! That is a great question. Neither option would be a total home internet solution. However, the benefit of using a Jetpack is that is solely used for the purpose of a hotspot source. Whether you use the Mobile Hotspot on your device or purchase a Jetpack they are the same feature. If you have a Jetpack though, you can use that as a supplement for when the Mobile Hotspot runs out. Although, it has a high speed limit of 15 GB as well.
