prepaid vs contract

My contract is going to expire next month and when I look at the options, it looks like I can get a much better deal with a prepaid plan over a contract.  That seems weird.  So, why would I sign up for a contract, that has the access fee and the mobile hotspot additional fee, which adds about $30 to a monthly cost - that isn't there if I get a prepaid plan?

Am I missing something?

ReddingGal, We want you to have the best plan on the best network. I'm here to help. With our prepaid plans you would have a slightly different coverage area You can look at the prepaid plans here and the traditional plans here to compare the two packages. One other difference would be in purchasing the device. With a contact account you would have the option to pay for your device in monthly installments using the Device Payment Plan, with prepaid service you would need to purchase your device in one payment. I hope that helps. Please let us know if you have any questions.
