Why does it cost more to use data boost than to buy a second plan? My plan costs around $2 per gigabyte, but a data boost cost around $6.5 per gigabyte. My plan for reference is the $65 15GB prepaid plan but I got in on a double your data promotion so I get 30GB/ $65. Even if I didn't get the double data promo it would still be around $2.50/GB more expensive to use data boost.
Crazy thing is, I'd save money each month if I bought a second or even third jetpack and got a completely separate plan/s for it/them rather than paying for data boost. This seems really wasteful, but I'm not sure what else to do since my data needs are around 100GB of jetpack use per month.
I work remotely mostly in rural areas and having a connection is necessary for my livelihood. Please tell me if there is a more elegant solution.
*Suggestion - Price data boost to match the per GB price of the plan. Happy to data boost multiple times over if the price would match what I pay for the plan (~$2/GB in this case). Even better yet, bring back Unlimited Data plans or larger data plans for jetpacks.
