To be specific the hotspot doesn't use data, it's the devices you connect to the hotspot (typically your phone) that a generating the traffic that uses data.  If you are browsing the internet, it's probably not a bunch.  If you are watching movies, youtube, things with video/audio in general will consume data very quickly

That was super helpful, gatorcb98. Thanks for reaching out to your fellow community member. ANDBUR24, I also wanted to let you know about our data calculator at https://www.verizonwireless.com/data-calculator/ that can help to identify the average amount used by some of the most common types of services, such as streaming audio. Keep in mind that it is an estimate and the actual amount will vary based on a number of factors. But it’s a great place to start to get a good idea of what to expect.
