Jetpack vs iPhone Hotspot


A customer is using their iPhone 6 Hotspot very frequently due to travel for work, and using about half of the business account's data allowance. He is connecting his laptop. My question is, would it use less data if he purchased a Hotspot device instead of using his iPhone's Hotspot to get internet on his laptop?

Thanks, Ivan! Any extra benefits of a Jetpack that you know of?

Hey Crissy! The main benefits that I would see from the Jetpack is that your phone's battery would be spared, it would usually transmit a stronger WiFi signal than a phone would and you might be able to get a larger data plan with a Jetpack than what you would get on a mobile device. But as Ivan said, it would use the same amount of data. Hope this helps!
