Why am I using more data when I use my phone with a jetpack?

Hello I have bought the Elipsis jet pack and do not understand why my data usage is more then when I use my phone? I've never in 8 years have used more then 2gb from my phone and use it constintatly. I just made a trip here to Arizona from Kansas and used google maps the whole way and still haven't gone over my data usage. Why is this?

Since the iPad sees the jetpack as a wifi connection, it will use cellular data throught he jetpack to do backup and app updates. Depending on how long it is has been since it was backed up or how much info is added each day, that can explain data use.

What are you connecting to the jet pack?  Computers will use a lot more data than a phone.
